Hi Elizabeth.

I wanted to ask you three questions and make one comment.

> The elderly often find it difficult to tolerate the side effects of antidepressant drugs, especially because they're more likely than younger people to be taking lots of other drugs as well.

Is there a greater occurrence of melancholic or psychotic depression in the elderly?

I am pretty sure that tricyclics tend to be more effective in the elderly. Is this true?

Do you think pseudodementia is being more properly diagnosed as depression now as compared to ten years ago?

> Hmm -- like, for example, Eric Harris, who stopped taking his Luvox shortly before gunning down a bunch of his classmates?

> These days, troubled people are liable to be taking antidepressants. Do the antidepressants always work? No, obviously not. But do the antidepressants make them more troubled?

> I doubt it.
