This latest research on Anti-depressants may shock you


Anti-depressants do they work?

I am in the process of reading a fabulous new book called ‘Lost Connections’ by Johann Hari, it is helping me to further understand Depression and its cause.


Johann suffered depression for 20 years and was treated in ‘the normal way’ by GP’s with drugs and antidepressants. The doctor told him that he had a natural shortage of serotonin and therefore he prescribed a drug to make him feel better.


Johann goes on to explain that at first he did feel better but as time went on the effects wore off and so each time when he went back to his GP he was prescribed higher doses. This went on for 13 years.

Johann was a journalist and wanted to find out if the drugs didn’t work for long term why so many people were taking them.
