Do Antidepressants have sedative qualities?
Ive just started CBT and the nurse practitioner
wants to put me on a anti-depressant with sedative properties
The only class of AD i can think of that would provide sedation is maybe a tricyclic? As far as i know SSRI's dont at all.
What drug could she possibly be thinking of giving me?
She said something about giving it to me before i go to sleep.. as far as i know AD's aren't given right before bed so it definetley seems that she has primarily sedation in mind; and i doubt that its really a AD that she would be giving me. Thoughts?
