This video is for educational purposes only. This video is intended to provide evidence based, scientific information about antidepressant drugs and not to argue for or against their use. Antidepressant medications can be an important tool in the arsenal for treating depression but do not come without the potential for significant side effects.
Any depressants are overused in this country if you're sad put them on the pill BS humans need to work through their emotions on their own this oh I'm sad give me a pill bull crap whatever happened to people working through their emotions on their own come on people quit seeking for that magic pill to help you out do it on your own grow up the pill is not the answer
Unfortunately our society is changed such that we can now EXPECT a certain percentage of the population to have "mental" (which is in the brain, and therefore clearly physical) illness. Hunter-gatherer tribes and groups with less technology are more content throughout their lives. YET WE CALL TECHNOLOGY PROGRESS.
It's not a matter of growing up you fucking imbecile. You sound like people from years ago that said "snap out of it." Depression and anxiety have always existed, it's just that now we have effective medications for them.
Janet Butterfield Overused? Sure. But that's a horrible way to think. Some people can't just "snap out of it" and don't have the energy or skills to get throug depression. Did you listen to the video at all? Educate yourself. People are committing suicide because of people with your arrogant "just deal with it" attitude.

Yes. Anafranil (Clomiprimine) has possibly the highest affinity for the Serotonin Transporter of all - including the newer SSRI/SNRIs. Imipramine is the other TCA that has a strong ability to increase serotonin levels. The other TCAs are much lower re increasing serotonin, and those - especially Nortiptyline and Desipramine - can and have been used successfully for many years alongside THE MORE POWERFUL MAOI anti-depressants with no ill effects. Why not? Because dangerous Serotonin Toxicity requires an MAOI + an SRI.
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
