This paper explores the pharmacological effects of anti-depressants in their treatment of depressive and related disorders, including ADHD, OCD, anti-social disorders, eating/sleeping disorders, and clinical depression. The constructivism of this work is in its substantial literature review, discussion section, and nursing implication sections where the author reveals both effectiveness and side effects of psychic drugs to cure depression. Nurse practical advice is given for those who work in clinics to reduce side effects and prevent worsening of the situation with patients.
Depression and related disorders have been treated by many generations of medications that are reported to have more or fewer effects on treatment. Specifically, they are all related to activating neural centers in the human brain and helping to transport serotonin and dopamine chemical structures between different brain centers. For this task, it is good to apply anti-depressants as stimulators of the brain activity in relation to their use irrespective of some side effects that may be significant for the brain structures.
