What are they?
Antidepressants are prescribed for mood conditions such as depression and anxiety, as well as for pain and sleeping troubles. You may have to try a few different ones before you and your provider find the best one for you.
How do they work?
Antidepressants can help balance chemicals in our brains. This can lead to improved moods, concentration, and sleep. It may take a few weeks (often four to six) for these medications to fully work.
