Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are a commonly used type of antidepressant. SSRIs are usually the first option medication for clinical depression because they generally have fewer side effects than most other types of antidepressant. In addition to anxiety, SSRIs can be used to deal with a number of other psychological wellness problems, including: panic attack; severe anxieties, such as agoraphobia and social phobia; bulimia. It's thought that SSRIs work by enhancing serotonin levels in the brain. After carrying a message, serotonin is usually reabsorbed by the nerve cells. SSRIs work by obstructing reuptake, meaning more serotonin is readily available to pass further messages between close-by nerve cells. It would be too simplified to say that depression and related mental health and wellness problems are triggered by low serotonin degrees, however a rise in serotonin levels can boost symptoms and make people more receptive to other types of therapy, such as CBT.
