Serotonin-Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRI)

Serotonin-Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors, also known as SNRIs, are a class of drugs that are used to treat depression and other mood disorders through the inhibiting, or slowing, of the reuptake of both serotonin and norepinephrine neurotransmitters by the synapses of the brain. This allows the powerful mood-altering neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine to have a greater and more long-lasting effect on the brain.
