The website contains numerous articles discussing the effect of antidepressants compared to placebos and other issues too. Please know that antidepressants like Zoloft may cause danger to your health according to various studies. Thus, always ask for medical advice when you suffer from any disorder/disease so that due treatment may be given.

There are medical studies that compares placebo with antidepressants like Paxil. It is found that the two have the same effect although Paxil has its own side effects. Placebo on the other hand have no known side effects. At times the way the patient perceives the effect of the medicine can affect the way the medicine works. Most people think that its better to take placebo than to take Paxil because of the severe side that the drug has. You can know more about the side effects that Paxil has when you visit this link .

Depression is real and it's out there and it can take over anyone. I've been experiencing it a lot with my wife after her dad passed away. She has resorted to locking herself away after each meal she eats. Which I feel is a good sign, because she still has her appetite .

No medication can help a person to deal with the depressive situation.
