Anti-Depressants

Anti-depressants are medications used to treat major depressive disorder, some anxiety disorders, some chronic pain conditions, and to help manage some addictions.

Effects:

Common side-effects of antidepressants include dry mouth, weight gain, dizziness, headaches, sexual dysfunction, and emotional blunting. Wikipedia

Are antidepressants used for other conditions?

A health care provider may prescribe antidepressants for anxietychronic pain, or insomnia. Sometimes providers also prescribe antidepressants for other conditions.

What are the different types of antidepressants?

There are many types of antidepressants. Each one works differently. Providers usually prescribe newer antidepressants first because they don’t cause as many side effects as older types. They also seem to help more kinds of depression and anxiety problems.

Most of the newer antidepressants belong to one of these three groups:

  • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)
  • Serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs)
  • Atypical antidepressants, which are newer antidepressants that don’t fit into the other groups

Which type of antidepressant is right for me?

Our bodies and brains all work differently. That means one antidepressant won’t work for everyone. You may need to try two or more medicines before you find one that works for you.

Your provider will work with you to choose the best option to try first. You’ll consider questions such as:

  • Which symptoms bother you most? Some antidepressants may do a better job helping specific symptoms, such as trouble sleeping.
  • What other medicines and supplements do you take? Some antidepressants can cause problems if you take them with certain medicines and herbs.
  • Did a certain antidepressant work well for a close relative? An antidepressant that helped a parent, brother, or sister could be a good choice for you, too.
  • Do you have other health conditions? Certain antidepressants can make some other conditions better or worse. Any other conditions that you have will be part of choosing your depression treatment.
  • Are you pregnant, planning for pregnancy, or breastfeeding? If so, your provider will help you find a way to treat your depression that’s safe for you and your baby.
  • Also check Stimulants.
