Thank you Niall, an excellent review of the current situation on antidepressants, All of what you have said is what I observe everyday. In the vast majority of new referrals to me, they are on antidepressants and have been for many years but continue to suffer chronic depressive states. This simply propagates the impression that depression is a chronic illness. The truth is that treatment has turned it into a chronic illness.
