New antidepressants: more options for tailoring treatment

Author and Disclosure Information

Abstract

Newer antidepressant drugs cause fewer, less-severe side effects and therefore usually elicit better patient compliance than do older drugs. The newer drugs have slightly differing mechanisms of action and effects and thus offer additional options for tailoring treatment to the individual patient. Yet they are not completely innocuous and can cause serious drug interactions.
