What antidepressants can I take if I have multiple sclerosis (MS)?

A Answers (1)

  • If you have multiple sclerosis (MS), various classes of medications exist to treat depression. The selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SSNRIs), and tricyclic antidepressants are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants for MS-related depression. However, it can take up to eight weeks for all of these products to reach their full therapeutic potential.
