Antidepressants are drugs that are used to treat the symptoms of depression and anxiety. They are also used in the treatment of obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorders, and bulimia (anti-suppressant).

The body produces chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters, among them are serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine. When the body produces low levels of these chemicals, a chemical imbalance occurs in the brain. Antidepressants alter the level and flow of neurotransmitters across the neural synapses, reducing the symptoms of depression.
