Description

What is Fetzima?

This medication is an anti-depressant that’s used as a short-term solution to help treat Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) in adults. This medicine affects serotonin, and works by stabilizing the chemical imbalances in the brain that lead to clinical forms of depression.

 Fetzima vs Cymbalta

Both Fetzima and Cymbalta help improve your mood but the latter also relieves certain types of pain. Both can raise increase high blood pressure so make sure to speak with your physician before taking one any of this medication.

Fetzima vs Pristiq

These two haven’t been compared in clinical studies, but both belong to a class of antidepressants called serotonin-norepinephrine. SNRIs work by reducing neurons’ abilities to reabsorb the neurotransmitter serotonin. “Reuptake” refers to when neurotransmitters are reabsorbed into presynaptic neurons, which is a vital component of the brain’s regulation of mood. By inhibiting reuptake rates, Fetzima allows serotonin levels to reach a higher concentration near their receptor sites, where they can send electrical impulses that improve mood and psychological health.
