Thank you very much for this important article, and for bringing attention to this too often over-looked problem.
I wanted to point out to your readers that although men can experience the classic symptoms of depression, postpartum depression can look very different in men than in women. Some of the symptoms in men include increased anger and conflict with others, increased use of alcohol or other drugs, frustration or irritability, withdrawing from family and friends, and impulsiveness or taking risks - like reckless driving, gambling and extramarital sex. Men are also more likely than women to report ongoing physical problems, such as stomach aches or headaches.
I'm glad that the article discussed treatment. I think it's also important to add that postpartum depression in men is a very treatable condition. And for most men, the biggest problem is NOT the depression itself, but the fact that think they should try to go it alone and not get help - and that's the worst thing they can do. Left untreated, postpartum depression often worsens and can lead to other serious consequences for a man and his family.
I thought your readers might also like to know about a web site for men with postpartum depression: http://www.SadDaddy.com . It's the only Internet site specifically for new dads with depression, and includes lots of information, an assessment for new fathers to complete, and an online forum for dads to talk with each other.
Thanks again, and keep up the good work!

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/PJZwMF only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
