In the past I have taken several different anti-depression meds. (not at the same time of course) After taking this pill for one thing and then another to counteract a side effect), I downsized and cut out most of them. No longer on anti-depressants although still on high blood pressure med. Anyway just this week my second daughter was put on an anti-depressant for anxiety. Now both daughters are taking anti-depressants. This makes me wonder if this is just a "norm" for stress in life today, or just hereditary?
