Suggest medication for anxiety and depression

Why is it not good for older adults to take seroquell I have nervous tics which were diagnosed as very mild torrents and took it for years under names Triavil and seroquell but they stopped giving it. I can not take any of the SSRI or other serotonin drugs so I need something for depression and tight muscles and my anxiety. It worked for all these

Hello, and thanks for your question.

A good medication for depression for you that avoids acting on serotonin specifically is mirtazapine. This is classically used in older adults, does not act on serotonin directly, and is very effective. I recommend discussing this with your doctor.
