Depression is also known as "emotional cold", meaning that its incidence is as normal as a cold. The consequences of any type of depression are extremely serious. Therefore, we must be familiar with the symptoms of depression, and timely intervention under the guidance of a specialist, so as to minimize the harm.

There are many antidepressant drugs. Among them, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) have good oral absorption, high bioavailability, good tolerance, and good compliance, and are suitable for various types of depression. SSRIs are the first choice for antidepressants in countries around the world. Fluoxetine, sertraline, citalopram, paroxetine, fluvoxamine are the most typical three drugs.
