There are four types of anti-depressants: Tricyclics, such as Tryptizol (the cheapest, as you'll see from our guide on the right) and Anafranil; Mono amine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), such as Nardil and Parnate; Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) such as Prozac and Lustral (the most expensive); and Serotonin and Noradrenaline Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRIs), such as Efexor.
A Some anti-depressants called Mono Amine Oxidase inhibitors react violently with foods like cheese, Marmite or red wine containing the chemical Tyramine and none should be taken with alcohol.
