Eileen Bailey Health Guide
  • Antidepressants are medications used to treat the symptoms of depression and related conditions (such as anxiety). Today, there are four main types of antidepressant medications:

    • tricyclic antidepressants
    • selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)
    • monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAO inhibitors, MAOIs)
    • tetracyclic compounds and atypical antidepressants

    Since individuals respond differently to medications, each person needs to work closely with their physician to determine which medication is best for him or her.
