Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Has the diagnosis of depression you mentioned been established by a doctor or psychiatric specialist?
Antidepressants are a class of drugs that can help relieve symptoms of depression, anxiety disorders, social phobias, mood disorders, and several other psychiatric conditions. The use of antidepressants is intended to overcome chemical imbalances in nerve signaling compounds (neurotransmitters) in the brain, which are believed to have a role in changing moods and human behavior.
There are tons of antidepressant drugs. In summary, there are 3 generations of antidepressants, including the first, second and third generation. Various antidepressant drugs can cause several side effects, including nausea, increased appetite and weight gain, decreased sexual desire, drowsiness, sleep disturbance, dry mouth, constipation, etc. Not everyone experiences the same side effects. In some people, these side effects are especially felt when new antidepressant therapy is started, and will improve within a few weeks later.
Unfortunately we are not able to prescribe certain antidepressant drugs. Antidepressants are classified as hard drugs, so the use of these drugs must be based on prescription and supervision by a doctor who treats patients directly. We recommend that you consult directly with a doctor or a psychiatric specialist. If you are given an antidepressant and then you are not comfortable with the side effects, you can raise the complaint with your doctor. The doctor may make adjustments to the dosage / type of drug if necessary. By consulting a doctor, depression can be treated appropriately while maintaining minimal side effects.
