> I have moderate depression. Say a 6 on a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being the worst). I can function, but I don't smile, laugh much, or have much confidence or energy. No luck with meds except Nardil which I came off of and when I went on again it didn't work very well. Is ECT that common these days? Is it too extreme for my case?
> Wanting to get better....John
