This guide can help you work with your doctor or nurse to choose medicines for depression. It covers:
- Common medicines for adults with depression
- Side effects
This guide is based on a government-funded review of research about the medicines often used to treat adults with depression.
This guide does not cover:
- Treatment of depression in children or teens
- Postpartum depression (“baby blues”)
- Depression that is part of another mental health condition like bipolar disorder (previously called manic-depressive disorder)
- Older antidepressant medicines like amitriptyline (Elavil®) and phenelzine (Nardil®)
- Other ways to treat depression such as counseling, light therapy, and herbal supplements like St. John’s Wort

In a Nutshell
I have never had the problem of depression and I thank God for that. With this lousy economy, if you ever thought that you needed help in this regard, please do get it.
