Antidepressants represent the most widely used of all prescription psychiatric medications. All major classes, such as SSRI's, tricyclics, and MAOI's, will be discussed.
Again: No washout is needed to switch from an SSRI to a Tricyclic (TCA) Antidepressant. Why? The 2 TCAs that increase serotonin utilize the same mechanism of action. If you don't understand this, you aren't fit to be writing a book on pharmacology.
At 14:34 begins an imbecilic falsehood. No washout period is necessary either to or from an (S)SRI - TCA. The OP and the book "Memorable Psychology" are dunces in a Mong school. Only (S)SRIs in combination with MAOIs can cause severe Serotonin Toxicity.
Read the literature in the last 20 years and stop giving future professionals in the field false information that will affect suffering patients.
this is an amazing video. your mnemonic works and your visual images are stimulating. I do use this technique to improve my recall but having something like this that is already done saves time. this is really helpful. thank you so much
This video is garbage. Psychiatry is a pseudoscience, a drugs racket, and a means of social control. It's 21st century Phrenology, with potent neuro-toxins. Psychiatry has done, and continues to do, far more harm than good. The DSM-5 is nothing more than a catalog of billing codes.
ALL of the so-called "diagnoses" in it are bogus, and they were ALL INVENTED, not discovered, to serve as excuses to $ELL DRUG$. There IS a difference! So-called "mental illnesses" are exactly as "real" as presents from Santa Claus, but not more real. As for the BULLSHIT about "serotonin & depression", there is NO legitimate medical evidence that so-called "depression" and serotonin levels are in any way correlated, much less exist in any sort of cause-and-effect relationship. What "studies" exist about so-called "antidepressants" are largely PhRMA-funded, and do not stand up well to independent scrutiny.

Hey there, thank you so much for your informative, clear and concise videos. I was wondering, if ADs are uppers and benzos are downers, how is it, from a molecular stand point, that it is a very common psychiatric combination? Aren't the ADs supposed to cancel the benzos effects, and vice versa?
Pls is there anybody out there.. I think i might need help.. Have been taking serotonin reuptake inhibitors fluoxetine and amitriptyline.. For 4 year now..

Best psych pharm lecture and tips EVER!!!! From Squirt-traline to CeLEXUS needs a ECarG I will never mix my meds up again on a test!!!!! The mnemonics, from the drug names, to the neurotransmitter actions and all the SEs, they were ALL brilliant!!!!!
From grateful nursing and med students everywhere, THANK YOU!

PS...the graphics are PERFECTION as well on all of your videos...so clean and simple that I know I will be able to close my eyes and visually see this presentation during an exam...especially the “periodic table”-like neurotransmitter symbols with + or - for their physiologic actions!!!!!
Just wanted to mention that since I know a lot of the presenters here on YouTube like feedback, & we viewers know how hard you all work on designing the templates for your channel!
Love the simple color schemes and the lovely main ‘orange’ theme drew me right in from the start as a SUNY Orange student lolol!
Thank you for your lectures. My psychopharm lecturer speaks in a manner that none of us understand, presents approx 45-50 slides in an hour and plows through. He told us if we fail it's because we are idiots! Thank goodness you are there with your plain English lectures. Exam in 36 hours and counting!!
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.
