Antidepressant Medication

Antidepressant medication: An Overview 

prozac antidepressant medicationAntidepressant medications  continue to develop and improve and have helped many people to lead much happier and more productive lives. Two kinds of antidepressant medications discovered in 1950ís which were found to immediately reduce symptoms of depression were monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIís) and tricyclics. These early antidepressant medications have now been joined by a third group which have been called the second-generation antidepressants. Before these discoveries the only drugs that provided any relief for depression were the amphetamines, which are stimulant drugs.  Amphetamines have been found to stimulate some depressed individuals to a higher level of activity, but have not really been found to result in an improved sense of joy. Below you will find links to pages providing an overall description of these three types out of antidepressant medications, as well as information on side effects, dosage and special precautions.
