Research has indeed made it possible to discover new treatment for depression. This new pathway for treating depression may even help those who have treatment-resistant depression. Medications like Zoloft and other SSRIs may not be the primary treatment because of the birth defects related to these drugs. This http://www.zoloftsertralinebirthdefects.com talks about the birth defects problems encountered with Zoloft.

Trust in the education and research of yale would be like trusting the Republican ALEC with your wallet in a business transaction and not being a member.

The FDA recklessly abandoning drug safety

Do you have a list of the SSRI's associated with violence and suicide?

A friend of mine likes her husband to take Paxil because she thinks it make him easier to get along with, even though she admits he seems to be getting worse. Then she says when he tries to cut his meds in half, he gets really bad. I think he is having withdrawal symptoms to his drug. He has started kicking at her while supposedly at sleep and started acting more angry toward her. I think she better be careful of him.

Thank you both, Alex and Human Spirit.

Keep telling people and warning them. I was down that black hole once myself.

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