Tetracyclic antidepressants

What are Tetracyclic antidepressants?

Tetracyclic antidepressants contain four cyclic rings as part of their structure. Tetracyclic antidepressants are similar to tricyclic antidepressants and act by inhibiting reuptake of neurotransmitters serotonin and/or noradrenaline in the brain, and elevate mood. They are effective antidepressants but are used less often now due to their side effect profile.
