What are Antidepressants?
An antidepressant medication is a psychiatric medication used to alleviate mood disorders such as chronic depression and/or major depression. Antidepressant medications can be wildly abused by psychiatrists and other doctors and prescribed for supposed “mental disorders, which in actual fact have no genetic or scientific validity. Vast medical research has shown that antidepressants have no benefit, masking real problems such as long-term medical situations or nutrition deficiencies. Antidepressants are also illegally used by people looking to “brighten their mood”, yet soon realize that increased depression is the result of long term abuse, as well as physical problems the develop due to the highly toxic content of these drugs. Most antidepressants prescribed today fall under one of a number of different drug groups which include:
- SSRIs (Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors)
- SNRIs (Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors)
- NRIs (Norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors)
- Norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitors
- TCAs (Tricyclic antidepressants)
- MAOIs (Monoamine oxidase inhibitors)
- NASSAa (Noradrenergic and specific serotonergic antidepressants)
- “Augmenter” antidepressant drugs
