Anti Depressant & Personality

It is believed that antidepressants may very well influence one’s personality. Nonetheless, one’s genetic make-up play a role too.

The uptake of serotonin neurotransmitter enhances the impact of depressants. As such, SSRIs target the uptake of serotonin in order to alleviate symptoms caused by depressants. By inhibiting the uptake of serotonin, it also cause one to become more outgoing.

In another placebo-controlled trial, patients were also better to counter the effects of depressants. Similarly, a group of 120 people with severe depression who took antidepressants also displayed milder impacts caused by depressants thereafter.

Thus, SSRIs may be able to mitigate the harm caused by depressants in the near future albeit arguments that this will only be significant for patients with severe depression. Nonetheless, it is imperative to take note that between SSRIs and older antidepressants, the former had less effects compared to the latter.

Whatever the case is, SSRIs are seemingly the next best bet against depressants.
