Many people who are suffering from depression are hoping to find better medications that will help them get rid of their problem. Being chronically depressed may make a person feel hopeless in finding a cure. However, with this new information, better treatment will be possible in the future. This site http://www.zoloftlawsuithelpcenter.com may offer information on Zoloft.

But what about free methods that don't use drugs like moodgym for instance.
There is also clarifylife and a comparison.

Just like the drugs they may not work on anyone but they may help some and the fact that they are free is great.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/DmlKns 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.
