This is the kind of sickening attitude that keeps people from looking for help and contributes to the suicide rate going up. The "depression is just laziness" attitude is that of neanderthals that I hope will someday get the disease that they dismiss as fantasy.

There is a new homeopathic transdermal treatment, RESPEN, now available that has been very effective for medication resistant depression and bipolar patients. In a scientific study, symptoms were alleviated within hours of the first application and without all of the side effects associated with other antidepressants, including loss of sexual function. The website is

The medication is currently compounded by a compounding pharmacist in Bellingham, WA and there is a patent pending on the compound. For more information, please call 877-963-3338.

If you email me I will send you the science to take to your doctor.
I have been hospitalized twice for clinical depression, the second because I was close to suicide.
I know how difficult it can be to find the right doctor and treatment. Nancy Campbell

Way to go Uncle Eug'. We're all proud of you of course. It take a lot to really admit that sometimes we're not in control.

Nowhere does it say that the case managers may have minimal education (medical assistants in some cases). It is also interesting that these case managers were permitted to provide phone counseling and assessments, and were paid for doing so, when the same insurance companies will not compensate licensed professionals with proper training do these tasks. There is also no ability for the client's therapist to provide any input about clients they know and have appropriately evaluated. Instead, the patient gets counseling from an unlicensed provider and drugs. I'm glad the client was helped in this instance, but I think that allowing the therapist to provide these services is far more responsible.

I am happy for you - you went for help! Me and my children would be no where had we not gone for help 27 years ago! We all have thrived from getting help! Throughout these years, we no longer dwell on the past and we are all smiling again! Take care and Happy Trails!

I've been on Effexor from 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.
