Investigators at the Institute for Coffee Studies will evaluate other chemicals in coffee other then caffiene to determine whether they have any medicinal value that group of chemicals is called chlorogenic acids. It was suggested in the early to mid 1980's that the chlorogenic acids effect the opiate system in the brain, giving people a sense of well being. They suggest that it's possible that these chemicals could also reduce alcohol dependency. It's been long believed that there are chemicals in coffee that work as antidepressants, it's still in the early stages of figuring out just how exactly that's working..

Trazondone, originally, was used as an antidepressant but it was soon discovered that it wasn't a good one but did make people drowsy so now it is used as a sleeping pill rather than an antidepressant.

Oxycodone is not an antidepressant. It is a pain reliever. There is no antidepressant that works like a pain reliever. See your doctor and get what is best for you.

Chantix. While not an antidepressant, it is similar to Wellbutrin which is an antidepressant, and is also used to help smoking cessation.

It works like this: you put the coffee under the coffee machine and then press the botton then the coffee will come out. And so on so the coffee will come out.

Usually, the doctor prescribe you another antidepressant drug. If you ask me, I strongly recommend to stop taking antidepressant drugs and try to treat depression in other ways like healthy food, sport and family.

Not coffee makers themselves, no. But the factory that produces the electricity to make the coffee machine work, does.

Nortriptyline is an antidepressant from the tricyclic antidepressant class. (Trade name originally was Pamelor). In low doses it is used as an adjunctive treatment for chronic pain, including headaches and other types. In moderate doses it may be used as an antidepressant or "add-on" medication to another antidepressant.
