Hi Tina21205. If I understand you correctly your son is taking antidepressants. As well as other medications. Could you give us the names of his medications, otherwise we can't really help you to answer your question,
My son had a lot of really bad nose bleeds as a child. The dotor finally put him on vitamin K & it helped tremendously. Jope this helps, metion it o your doctor as I believe you can only get this as a prescription...
Some antidepressants dry your mouth and nasal secretions so his nose might be very dry causing the skin to crack and bleed. You can try having him use saline nasal spray to moisturize the nasal passages. It also helps to put a tiny bit of vaseline in each nostril to keep the skin moist and prevent it from cracking.
Well for me it was my liver not producing enough blood platelets, some anti-depressants can effect liver function. It may also be a blood vessel that has turned into a small lesion that keeps getting inflamed and bleeding. Other than that, since he is a youngster I would take him to the doctor that prescribed the anti-depressant for some basic blood tests to make sure he is metabolizing the medication correctly. It may be unrelated but surely this is something a doctor must check out for you. It can be a sign of something more serious. If he also bruises easily that is a very good reason to take him to the doctor as well. hope he gets better soon... nose bleeds are no fun..Amanda
It coould be the meds it could be dry air stress lots of things please cosult his dr this maay be over the line I don't know yours sons age so I don't mean to offend at all but if he is at the age that drugs can be involved cocaine causes nose bleeds.
