SNRI
 
German Version French Version
 

The neurotransmitter Serotonine plays an important role with depressive disturbances and other psychological illnesses, as the level of Serotonine is reduced in the synaptic gap. In contrast to the SSRI, which affect exclusively the level of Serotonine, the SNRI affects specifically both the Serotonine and Noradrenaline level, as the connection at the receptors of the nerve cell is prevented and thus more free Serotonine and Noradrenaline are availableat the same time. On the other hand the classical Tricyclic- and Tetracyclic- Antidepressants affects all messenger substances of the brain. Higher specificity permits a lower concentration and reduces thus the adverse effects, i.e. blood pressure increase, nausea, feeling of dizziness, which arise occasionally at the beginning of the therapy.

For the criticism of the use of SNRI see SSRI.
