Antidepressant is a substance that is used in the treatment of depression and/or mood disorders. Antidepressant herbs effect the brain and nervous system by increasing the amount of neurotransmitter (signals) to the brain. They balance the chemicals in the brain and thereby help to cure or prevent depression.
Excessive quantities of antidepressant herbs may cause:
- Dry mouth
Antidepressant herbs, just like all other herbs, should be taken with the consultation of a healthcare practitioner.
