The young people who are drinking alcohol is increasing each year and getting younger and younger. This amendment may be able to hold off minors from purchasing alcohol. Studies have connected alcohol consumption with mental health problems such as depression.

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.
