I wonder whether taking the SSRIs could possibly create a chronic depression.

I am 6-1 215lbs. and I have been taking lexapro from reputable online pharmacy http://newtrustescitalopram.info for about 6 weeks now. Immediately I was able to sleep better and noticed my anxiety going away. I didn't have thoughts running through my mind when trying to sleep. I am being treated for depression and anxiey. Give it some time before you determine weather or not it is working for you. Now that I have been on lexapro for over a month, I feel much better and I don't worry about the things that use to bother me before I started taking lexapro.

This is good news. While I was reading on Zoloft therapy across the internet, most of the things that I came across are related to birth defects or other side effects. This is proof that these antidepressants are doing what they're supposed to do (may be applicable to some but not to all).

I'll be glad when medical researchers recognize the link between inflammation and depression, and find new ways of treating it. http://www.antiagingjournal.org/depression-an...

Indeed pharmaceutical companies are making money out depressed people. Statistic will show you that 6 million people are depressed and only a few percent of it can receive proper treatment. Depression has become prevalent and Paxil or any other antidepressants are available in the market for use. And due to the need for antidepressants, some are even addicted to it. You can visit http://www.paxilbirthdefectlaw.com/paxil-addi... to learn about Paxil addiction.

Ask yourself why depression is growing. All diseases and conditions are. New conditions and diseases are entering the picture. Why? It starts with vaccines.

This is a funny article and i have seen data that refutes these findings. Seems they cherry picked what was convenient. They claim 80 percent success, without mentioning the scientific fact that a significant portion of the success is due to the placebo effect of the drug. Not so impressive if 60 percent also get better with placebo.
ps.(El-Mallakh)- However, up to 80% of patients maintained on an antidepressant suffer a recurrence of symptoms, and once that “initial treatment response is lost,” continued efforts to treat the relapsed patient with antidepressants frequently results in “poor response and the rise of treatment-resistant depression.” Ultimately, this process—the continual prescribing of antidepressants to someone who has become treatment resistant—may "make the chronic depression permanent.” only about 10% to 15% of patients with major depressive illness had treatment-resistant depression (and thus were chronically ill.) In 2006, researchers reported that nearly 40% of patients were now treatment-resistant. In a period when use of SSRI antidepressants exploded, refractory depression went on the march.

another NIMH study comparing psychotherapy to medication.
When patients in the NIMH study were evaluated 2 years later, 50% of those treated with medication had become depressed again, while 35% of those treated with therapy had relapsed.(Joseph Glenmullen, Prozac Backlash).

@atom h . You should look up "tardive dysphoria" and the "oppositional tolerance" model by Fava.

Indeed as time passes by the number of depressed individuals are only rising. Long term use of antidepressants doesn't present any good because it would mean that the person would be dependent on the drug. People taking Paxil have also reported that they have experienced side effects even after quitting the drug. Some have filed lawsuits against the manufacturer. You can read about this at http://www.paxilbirthdefectlaw.com/paxil-laws... .

And probably the ones smiling the brightest are the pharmaceutical companies. Antidepressants are money-making businesses especially if you consider the figure that an estimated 1 in every 10 Americans are suffering from depression. This is according to statistics from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. This is indeed one big market for business. What is not highlighted though, is that while the benefits of antidepressants are real for some, the risks and hazards are just as real for some others. There are many known cases, and maybe more untold incidences, of patients suffering from the adverse effects of popular antidepressants like Paxil, Zoloft, Celexa, among others.

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#adif for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.
