SSRI VS SNRI

Serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI)

  • Venlafaxine
  • desvenlafaxine
  • Duloxetine

SNRI manage depression associated with pain. This is attributed to their ability to inhibit the reuptake of norepinephrine.

VERSUS

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI)

  • Paroxetine
  • Fluoxetine
  • Fluvoxamine
  • Citalopram
  • Escitalopram
