Go see a doctor, say you can't sleep. He immediately gives you Pharma for depression. Tell him you are sad and crying because your child has autism. Again depression. They forget we can have sleep issues because of stress or too much coffee. They forget that loss causes a natural mourning response, nope, its depression.

Taking antidepressant does increase the risk of other individuals in developing various illnesses. There has been a study that has found a link between depression and antidepressant use with heart attack. Feel free to visit read all about this study.

Depression stems from many various reasons, from seemingly trivial to serious incidents that triggered the illness. Any stressor is a potential cause of depression. Plus, there are genetic, diet, mental and psychological ""triggers" " that may result to a severe case of depression.

Mental and health experts say that seeking professional consult at the earliest sign of depression is advised. The sooner the condition is nipped in the bud, the better it would be for the patient. Unfortunately, many people wait until the effects have grown into a serious and debilitating condition. For mild depression, studies have revealed that antidepressants may have little or negligible real therapeutic value but the side effects of these drugs are real.

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.
