The most cost effective way to get a team approach is to send the patient to a partial hospitalization program for at least 20 weeks. They learn amongst peers what to do for themselves, how to recognize symptoms of the illness and have the peer pressure to do what they are taught because their peers are doing and getting well.

How about if they tour the country, see the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, the Rockies and the volcanos in Peru?

The money spent on doctors and pills could be used for a much needed long vacation..perhaps in the Caribbean, away from work and other depressing people like relatives and psychiatrists.

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.
