Which medicine better for major depression quetiapine seriously otherwise mirtazapine.

2 Doctors Answered
Both drugs not the first line antidepressants and you should have a talk with a psychiatrist to choose medicine for you after trying no drug methods Many clinicians consider mirtazapine a second-line or even third-line antidepressant, to be used when older antidepressants are not tolerated or are ineffective. Mirtazapine is also a good choice in depressed patients with significant anxiety or insomnia. All antidepressants decrease your libido and drive to do sex which you should be aware of.

There is no better or inferior medicine, they act in a very complex manner and varies between individuals to individuals, so consult your psychiatrist and work with them to find the right medication and also side effects and tests need to be done to monitor the medications.
