|Drug Class: What is Desyrel and why is it prescribed?|
|Generic Desyrel is an antidepressant, a medicine that helps to lift mental depression. Generic Desyrel can help patients whose depression has not responded to other medications, or who have experienced limiting side effects with other antidepressants. Generic Desyrel may also be used to treat other conditions such as problems sleeping, anxiety, and panic attacks.|
|Desyrel Mechanism: How does Desyrel work?|
|Generic Desyrel belongs to a class of medications similar to the tricyclic anti-depressants (TCAs).
When depression occurs, there may be a decreased amount of the chemicals noradrenaline and serotonin released from nerve cells in the brain. When these chemicals are released from nerve cells they act to lighten mood. When they are reabsorbed into the nerve cells, they no longer have an effect on mood.
Generic Desyrel works by preventing this re-absorption of serotonin back into the nerve cells.
Generic Desyrel may also act to mimic the mood-lightening effect of released serotonin and enhance a very small degree of noradrenaline release from nerve cells in the brain. Therefore, Generic Desyrel helps enhance and prolong the mood-lightening effect of any released noradrenaline and serotonin. This helps relieve depression.
Generic Desyrel also acts to relieve anxiety and is therefore useful in the treatment of depression that is accompanied by anxiety.
Generic Desyrel may also be used in the long-term treatment of anxiety disorders where other medication is considered inappropriate.
