Antidepressants are a safe and highly effective means of treating anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Antidepressants have been around since the 1950s and have been commonly used for the last 20 years. They’ve been studied extensively and are all approved by the FDA.
The antidepressants that we prescribe are non-controlled medications, which means they aren’t classified as having euphoric or addictive properties. These medications are not known to cause cravings, hazardous behaviors, or examples of prolonged addictive behavior.
Typically, antidepressants need to be taken every day for 4 to 6 weeks before causing noticeable improvements. You’ll most likely feel the full benefits after 2 to 3 months. This varies from person to person, so it’s important to stick with your long-term Cerebral treatment plan to receive the full benefits of the medication. If you don’t notice benefits before the 6-week mark, your Prescriber will most likely encourage you to continue taking your medication until the 6-week mark. It’s important to give your medication enough time to build a therapeutic dose before changing medications.
Antidepressants can cause a withdrawal effect if you stop or reduce your use without consulting your Prescriber first. If you decide that you no longer want to continue taking your antidepressant, please let your Care Team know.
