What are Antidepressants

Antidepressants are drugs that treat depression and improve the symptoms. The main types of antidepressants are tricyclic antidepressants, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, monoamine oxidase inhibitors and other atypical antidepressants. All types of antidepressant drugs may take more than two weeks to show any benefits, although their pharmacological effects are produced immediately.
