List of SSRI Medications



Below is a list of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). 

 

Paroxetine (Paxil)

Sertraline (Zoloft)

Escitalopram (Lexapro)

Fluoxetine (Prozac)

Fluvoxamine (Luvox)

 

SSRIs selectively inhibits serotonin reuptake, allowing more serotonin to stay at the junction of the neurons. It does not block dopamine or norepinephrine.

SSRIs, such as Paroxetine, cause CNS stimulation, which can cause insomnia. 

It takes SSRIs 4-6 weeks to have its therapeutic effect.

SSRIs are used for generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, obssessive compulsive disorder (OCD), social anxiety disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and depressive disorders.
