Best Depression Prescription Drugs

Antidepressant drugs actually do help ease depression, countering debate over whether the medications do what they’re supposed to, a large research review has found.

Antidepressants, particularly the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), are widely used to treat and prevent a variety of anxiety disorders. Examples of SSRIs that are commonly used to treat chronic anxiety include citalopram (Celexa), escitalopram (Lexapro), lorazepam (Ativan)Clonazepam (Klonopin), and Diazepam(Valium). The antidepressants duloxetine (Cymbalta) and venlafaxine (Effexor), SNRIs (serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors) which act on the brain chemicals serotonin and norephinephrine, and some of the tricyclic antidepressants like imipramine (Tofranil), may also help. Novel antidepressants such as mirtazepine (Remeron) are also prescribed at times.
