In brief: Not that easy

People rezpond differently to different types of medications.
Whereas, one may tolerate and benefit from prozac, (fluoxetine) another person with the same symptoms may not. Most antidepressants have been shown to be effective with dep and anx and although pharmaceutical vompanies would want you to believe their's is best, i don't necessarily agree. Potential side effects do vary, which is an important consider.
