Hi Hugh,

Thanks for sending me this, it echos my thoughts completely.

Years ago, in the early 90s when I first took an antidepressant, I asked the Doctor what they were doing because the effect they had on me was miraculous. He simple shrugged his shoulders and said I had a serotonin inbalance and they were just rebalancing it. I asked him why I had the inbalance in the first place and he said that he didn't know but if they worked just carry on taking them. So I did. I bought the story and just assumed that everyone with depression had a serotonin inbalance that was taken care of with antidepressants.

Years later, after being off them for three years, feeling well and thinking that depression was just something I suffered in my youth because of lac of direction, the ffffing depression comes back out of the blue, much worse, I take them again and have horrendous symptoms. This time another Doctor said "oh well, you must have a personality disorder"! Or sometimes, it's well it must be related to some kind of unresolved emotional trauma! FFFs sake. It's like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

People often liken depression and taking antidepressants to a diabetic needing insulin. It's nothing like it. We have no proof of what is wrong. Like the description by Dr Amen, we are effectively it's like putting more oil into a car to compensate for a malfunctioning engine. The problem is when drugs stop working, they don't know why because they don't know what they were doing in the first place!
