Antidepressant drugs are the most commonly prescribed class of drugs that is used for the treatment of depression. Depression is a health condition that can affect the normal functioning of an individual's life. Rise in cortisol levels that is triggered by depression results in the enlargement of the amygdala, which is the part of the brain that is responsible for emotional responses. Sleep disturbances, lethargy, suicidal thoughts, etc., can be caused due to this. Therefore, the treatment of depression is of extreme importance for the mental well being of an individual. Drugs are provided on a prescription basis by mental health practitioners in cases with moderate and severe depression. Along with depression, other conditions such as PTSD, OCD, panic disorder, etc., are treated by antidepressants. Fluoxetine, which is commonly sold as Prozac and Sarafem, is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) type antidepressant that is used in the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD), bulimia nervosa, OCD, amongst others. Taken by mouth, Fluxetine has also been used for treating premature ejaculation in young adults. Therefore, the use of antidepressants for the treatment of common disorders, coupled with the rise in depression cases globally that require prescription-based drugs is helping in the growth of the global antidepressant drugs market.
