Yes many of those who are depressed are still unable to get the needed treatment for their problem. It comes as a challenge for the government and health care providers to make mental health services more accessible to all. Proper treatment may help these individuals get back on their feet to live better lives. http://www.zoloftlawsuithelpcenter.com

What did these dumb azzez expect? Every drug taken during the first trimester of the pregnancy is potentially teratogenic. Not that there is much benefit from these SSRIs when treating depression, anyway.

If I get your point, the drugs pass through, but the stress from untreated depression has an affect too. I realize this concept is unacceptable, but what's wrong with people getting their heads together before getting pregnant? There's no shortage of people. There's just a surplus of unwanted, unfunded and mentally compromised individuals.
