Zoloft, Floxitine. Those are some of the known ones and it all depends on you. Talk to your doctor. If you feel you need an anti depressant then talk to a doctor or try these other suggestions. Exercise does work just as well.

None. Don't take anti-depressants. They mess with your brain chemistry too much. Try exercising, sleeping better, and a better diet. It'll do way better than any drugs. Also, Meditation helps relax one.
Just talking to someone can really help you deal with bad memories & experiences. But for some it's diet, exercise & sunshine. Others, it's correcting chemical or hormonal imbalances. And sometimes it means getting away from the source of upset. (A tiresome job, a miserable family member; a bad marriage.) Pills s/b be the last option, jmo. Doctors were once careful about issuing helpful, tested medications w/ proper monitoring. Today pills are brought to market too fast & prescribed too easily by many doctors too busy to monitor patient responses. (Not all their fault. Drug co's constantly bombard them w/ medications to learn about.) Regardless, it's obvious to most that prescribing a depressed person pills that may cause suicide, or severe side effects, is like handing that person a loaded gun. Physical pain along w/ mental pain is too much for most. The drug dangers & side effects of today's medications too often outweigh the negative effects of the illnesses they treat. Please don't buy into pills as the quick & only solution. It took time for troubles to build & tangle & it takes time to untie them as well.
