In brief: I tried to research

this & found lots of articles about prescribing in the US, & in a variety of other countries.
But I was unable to find anything in the literature which states which antidepressants or antidepressant classes are the most commonly prescribed. Your question intrigued me, so I was disappointed in being unable to provide you with an accurate answer.
