Depression has indeed been a prevalent psychological problem in today's youth. I think, bullying has been one of the factors that may have contributed to this, especially to the overwhelming number of succeeded and attempted suicides. It's good to know that many people are taking the effort to raise awareness concerning this growing problem. Taking down depression is far from impossible as there are many treatment options available. Although in taking antidepressants such as Zoloft, it's best that a patient takes the time to know its benefits and risks before taking one. Feature articles at could be a good source of information.

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.
