    Antidepressant Side Effects Cause Depression

    I've been on and off antidepressants for about 10 years now. Right now, I am currently off.  I never needed them as a teenager or young adult, it wasn't until my mid-20's I was having breakdowns in college.  A series of life-changing events, including my father's death, caused...
