Re: How do antidepressants stop panic and anxiety?
They work by elevating the levels of seretonin and/or noradrenalin in the brain.
I have taken citralopram and nortriptyline for years and they havent pooped out.
Taking the two in combination is more effective than taking either one alone, and may help prevent "poop out" (though wether poop out actualy exists is a touchy subject)
I take citralopram 40mg at night, and nortriptyline 75mg at night, every night, and have some Xanax to take when i feel an anxiety attack comming on, or when i feel especialy tense and anxious.
