Antidepressants include several classes such as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), tri- or hetero-cyclic antidepressants, and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs).
These categories are (1) selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs); (2) tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs); and (3) monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MOAIs).
Because L-tryptophan increases serotonin levels, co-administration of L-tryptophan and antidepressants that increase serotonergic activity (such as selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors [SSRIs], amitriptyline, or monoamine oxidase inhibitors) may increase both the efficacy and the toxicity of the drugs.
The prescribing of most classes of anti-depressants increased, although the older generation "monoamine oxidase inhibitors" went down.
Chapter 27 on "Brachial Plexus Block" had a discussion of "commonly used antidepressant drugs", referring only to tricyclic antidepressants and monoamine oxidase inhibitors.
