    Nearly three years ago I fell into a major

    depression. I was in my first year of university and living alone in a new city. I was initially put onto Cipralex 25mg and when that did not work I was put onto Lamictin in conjunction with the Cipralex. I started on 75mg then built up to 100mg. 6 months later I was diagnosed...
