des-venlafaxine is antidepressant of choice
Thanks for using healthcare magic. I, Dr Abhishek Kapoor, would help you in this query.
All antidepressants help in increasing serotonin level and dopamine level, thus help in decreasing depressive symptoms. Response with antidepressant varies patient to patient and its use depend upon clinical experience of physician or psychiatrist
. If you are not getting any effective with prozac (fluoxetine
), then you can try des-venlafaxine or paroxetine.
is an antidepressant of the serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor
and effective in peri-menopausal female. It has very less side effects and would not aggravate diabetes or hypertension
Paroxetine is an antidepressant of selective serotonin uptake inhibitor and effective in controlling depressive symptoms.
Both these antidepressant are very effective and you can choose either one. Rest you can discuss with your psychiatrist or physician. In case, you need further help, you can ask.
