Antidepressants are widely recognized as safe and highly effective treatments for anxiety, depression, and insomnia. These medications have been used since the 1950s and have been extensively studied, with FDA approval.
It's important to note that the antidepressants prescribed by Cerebral are non-controlled medications, meaning they do not possess euphoric or addictive properties. They are not associated with cravings, hazardous behaviors, or prolonged addictive behavior. Rest assured that our prescribed antidepressants are selected based on their safety profile and efficacy in treating mental health conditions.
To experience the full benefits of antidepressant treatment, it is typically necessary to take the medication consistently for 4 to 6 weeks. Noticeable improvements are often observed after 2 to 3 months, though individual responses may vary. It is crucial to adhere to your long-term Cerebral treatment plan in order to maximize the benefits of the medication. If you do not notice noticeable improvements before the 6-week mark, your Prescriber will likely encourage you to continue the medication until sufficient time has been given for the therapeutic dose to be established before considering any changes.
Please note that stopping or reducing the use of antidepressants without consulting your Prescriber first can potentially lead to withdrawal effects. If you decide that you no longer wish to continue with your current antidepressant, it is important to inform your Care Team and consult with them to plan a safe and appropriate course of action.
