And by that I mean, what is REALLY in them?<br><br>
How are MAOI's and SSRI's manufactured? Are they hormones, or are they a type of drug derived from say, heroin or opium?<br><br>
I ask because I had PPD with my first, BAD. My second I lucked out and didn't get it. I am considered placenta encapsulation with my third. If I don't do encap, I will do zoloft (which isn't even an ssri, etc....what IS it?)<br><br>
I ask all of this because in menopause, alot of the drugs to regulate the female body are made from FEMALE HORSE URINE. Gross.<br><br>
SO, what are antidepressants REALLY made from? Please help me!!!<br><br>

Zoloft is indeed an SSRI. It's not based on any botanical or hormonal analog. Very broadly speaking, it's made from petroleum and a bit of chlorine.
