Both SSRIs and SNRIs are types of antidepressant medications. They are both used to treat generalized anxiety disorder. They are also used to treat other anxiety disorders like panic disorders and phobias. Examples of SSRIs are escitalopram (Lexapro), paroxetine (Paxil), and sertraline (Zoloft).

By most accounts, antidepressants became an anxiety drug by accident - something that appears to be true about many of the medications for anxiety. Antidepressants were created to control depression and bipolar disorder, and then studies found that there was a noticeable decrease in anxiety. This makes sense on a chemical level as well.

Antidepressant Medications . The most commonly prescribed antidepressant medication used to treat OCD is selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Though they're traditionally used to treat depression, research has shown SSRIs to be the most effective medications for OCD, as well. In fact, SSRIs have been shown to help as many as 70% of people with OCD.

Drugs interfere with the way neurons send, receive, and process signals via neurotransmitters. Some drugs, such as marijuana and heroin, can activate neurons because their chemical structure mimics that of a natural neurotransmitter in the body. This allows the drugs to attach onto and activate the neurons.
