Tip This Week- Antidepressants

Moving on with the our multi segment on commonly prescribed medications for age groups, this week’s tip will be on Antidepressants, the most commonly prescribed medication for individuals aged 20-59.

Antidepressants are usually taken every day. It can take up to a month to see the full results of taking an antidepressant. You may need to try different kinds or amounts (dosages) to find the antidepressant that works best for you. Antidepressants are typically taken for at least 6 to 12 months. In some cases, patients and their doctors may decide that antidepressants are needed for a longer time.

Chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters are needed for normal brain function. Antidepressants help people who have depression by making these natural chemicals more available to the brain.

For more information on antidepressants, follow up on the resources provided below.
