Medicines for depression

Your doctor may prescribe an antidepressant to help lift your mood. Antidepressants are thought to work by affecting certain chemicals within the brain. They work slowly, so you won’t usually notice any improvement in your symptoms for a few weeks. Your doctor may have to try more than one drug to find the one that suits you best.
