Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor
-preserves the mood neutrotransmitter serotonin in the synapse between brain neurons a little longer than it would naturally be.
-probably does lots of other things, due to receptor binding as well as transporter binding

MonoAmine Oxidase Inhibitor
-also preserves neurotransmitter half-life in the synapse, by slowing the destruction of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin by the enzyme monoamine oxidase
-moreover, it does the same things within neurons, extending the life of existing molecules of these neurotransmitters
-because the enzyme monoamine oxidase also is found in the gut, where it protects us from physiologically active amines in foods, inhibition of this enzyme involves dietary restrictions.
