With typically fewer side effects, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant. SSRIs can ease the symptoms of moderate to severe depression, and are also effective for treating many anxiety disorders.
Serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) help to relieve symptoms of depression, such as irritability and sadness, but can also be used to treat other conditions, like anxiety disorders.
Tricyclic antidepressants affect brain chemicals to ease symptoms of depression, and have also been used in the treatment of panic disorders, PTSD and generalised anxiety.
Atypical antidepressants are often used in patients who suffer from major depression or anxiety and who have an inadequate response, or experience intolerable side effects from other antidepressants such as SSRIs.

Anxiety symptoms often develop slowly over time and aren’t always obvious, even when they begin to have a negative impact on your life. While a certain amount of anxiety is considered normal — and even healthy — particularly during stressful situations, it can be difficult to know how much is too much.
If you’re frequently experiencing feelings of fear or worry that seem disproportionate to current events or challenges in your life, you may be suffering from anxiety:
Anxiety feels different for everyone and can range from slight butterflies in the stomach to full-blown panic attacks. Anxiety symptoms can be generalised, or can be induced by certain events or situations, such as social occasions. If you are suffering from an anxiety disorder, our doctors can help you manage your mental health from the comfort of home with prescriptions for anxiety medication, doctor consultations and specialist referrals.
