Fonksera general information

What is Fonksera used for?

Fonksera tablets 20mg are used to treat major depressive disorder to relieve symptoms of depressive illness, including anxiety, loss of interest in usual activities, disturbed sleep, change in appetite, fatigue, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, difficulty thinking or concentrating, and recurrent thoughts of suicide.  Fonksera tablets 20mg are also used to prevent relapse of depression and recurrence of further depressive episodes.  Fonksera tablets 20mg can be used for first line therapy and for maintenance therapy for major depressive disorder.

How does Fonksera work?

Fonksera tablets 20mg contain vortioxetine, an antidepressant belonging to the class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI), as it works by blocking serotonin reuptake, but is pharmacologically different to other SSRIs as it works through a different mechanism to other SSRIs.  Vortioxetine in Fonksera tablets 20mg act directly on brain cells to correct the chemical imbalance that is thought to be one of the major causes of depression and other mood disorders, particularly a lack of serotonin (a neurotransmitter or brain chemical that allows nerve cells to communicate), which controls many body activities, including regulating mood.  Vortioxetine in Fonksera tablets 20mg is a serotonergic agent (serotonin agonist) and works by direct modulation of various serotonin receptors on the presynaptic neuron.  This blocks the reuptake into nerve cells (neurones) of serotonin from the synapse, or gap between neurones across which chemical messages are sent from one neurone to another.  Vortioxetine in Fonksera tablets 20mg also binds to the serotonin transporter that transports serotonin across the neurone membrane, which also blocks serotonin reuptake.  If the re-uptake of serotonin by the pre-synaptic neurone is blocked, this means that there is more serotonin remaining for the post-synaptic neurone or receiving neurone, which allows nerve cells to communicate with each other for longer.  Fonksera tablets 20mg help correct the chemical imbalance caused by a lack of serotonin that is thought to be one of the major causes of depression and other mood disorders.

Treating major depression with Fonksera

Fonksera tablets 20mg contain vortioxetine, a serotonergic antidepressant that is used to treat major depressive disorder to relieve symptoms of depressive illness, including anxiety, loss of interest in usual activities, disturbed sleep, change in appetite, fatigue, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, difficulty thinking or concentrating, and recurrent thoughts of suicide; also, to prevent relapse of depression and recurrence of further depressive episodes.  One of the major causes of depression is thought to be a lack of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter, or brain chemical that allows nerve cells to communicate, which controls many body activities, including regulating mood.  Vortioxetine in Fonksera tablets 20mg act directly on brain cells and works by binding to several serotonin receptors in brain cells, which blocks the reuptake of serotonin from the synapse, or gap between nerve cells across which chemical messages are sent to allow nerve cell to communicate with each other.  By blocking the reuptake of serotonin from the synapse back into the pre-synaptic neurone there is more serotonin remaining for the post-synaptic neurone or receiving neurone.  This allows nerve cells to communicate with each other for longer to regulate mood.  Fonksera tablets 20mg help correct the chemical imbalance caused by a lack of serotonin that is thought to be one of the major causes of depression and other mood disorders.
