> Unfortunately, I don't have a citation right in front of me, but I've read that about 50% of depressed people have elevated corticosteroid levels. Question: Are the elevated corticosteroid levels the chicken or the egg?
My depression was actually corticosteroid induced (prednisone). Never have been the same since I was on a twenty day prednisone cycle in late 1997. I think the prednisone burned out my brain and created a severe clinical depression.
