What is the best anti-depressant for me?


Answer by  barbie (115)

Although anti-depressants do much the same thing, especially the SSRI type, they do it in a little different way. Your doctor will decide through trial and error.

It is unlikely that anyone can predict what the best anti-depressant will be for you because everybody's brain chemistry is different. It takes awhile to find what works.

One medication might do wonders for you while another might not. Give your medication a few weeks to kick in. You'll know if you found the right medication if you feel like your enjoying life again with an improved mood. You might have to try more than one medication. If your experiencing side effects, tell your doctor.

This is something you should ask your doctor about. He or she will be able to help you find out what the best anti-depressant is for you. Your doctor will be able to tell you the different options you have and all about the different medicines her or she thinks would work best for you.

Every person is different so that would be something to discuss with your doctor. In the meantime try some st. john's wart.

I like to quote a common statement used in car advertisements. Your mileage may vary. Different biochemical conditions may cause depression and those conditions respond differently to different medications. Also, if you take other medications, you need to consider drug interactions. The best bet is talking to a good doctor.
