SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) or SNRI’s (Serotonin-Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitor) (medications for depression)
Please Note: In an effort to help with medication compliance, we have made a handout for you to give to new SSRI users to help with the common side effects. Please use as you see fit.
Depression is a medical condition that goes beyond everyday sadness. Depression may cause serious, long-lasting symptoms, and often disrupts a person’s ability to perform routine tasks. The treatment of depression is important; people with untreated depression have a lower quality of life, a higher risk of suicide, and worse physical outcomes if they have any medical conditions besides depression.
