Do anti-depressants work?

According to recent press articles, some new research suggests that anti-depressants such as Prozac, Seroxat and Efexor may in many cases not be significantly more effective than placebos in helping people to overcome depression, although they may be more helpful for those who are suffering extreme depression.

Please note that I do not have personal knowledge of how this research was conducted or whether it has been reported accurately in the press. If you are taking anti-depressants I would strongly advise you to consult your doctor or another suitably trained medical professional before considering stopping doing so. To read an account in the press of the research findings questioning effective of some anti-depressants, please visit the link below:
