Researchers have found that a hearing test (dichotic listening test) may help determine whether SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) antidepressants will be effective for a certain patient. SSRI's include Prozac, Zoloft and Wellbutrin. The hearing test determines whether a persons left or right brain is dominant. The more a patient tends to be left brain dominated, the more likely the SSRI antidepressants will work.
