Statistical evidence shows that depression affects more than 2.9 million people in the United Kingdom (UK). Figures also show that seven out of ten suicides are by people affected by depression, i.e., a total of 7,000 lives lost every year in the UK and Ireland.

According to specialists, while the focus is on the best ways to treat this illness, the concern is that at present as many as three in four cases of depression are neither recognized nor treated.

Antidepressants are medicines used to help people to release their lives from depression. Most people can achieve significant recovery from depression through these medications. But it is not enough, because a complete treatment encompasses other things too, such as psicotherapy.

Although antidepressant drugs are neither a panacea nor happy pills, they are an important part of the problem solution, for instance, in severe cases. They are drugs that can be prescribed only by doctors. They have risks as well as benefits, and that is the reason why they should be taken under a physician's supervision. Taking medications for depression shall no be understood as a sign of personal weakness

There are various factors in antidepressant administer, such as the level of the person's depression, age, history of illness and personal preferences. Most people do best with a combination of medications for depression and therapy.

There is strong evidence that antidepressants are more effective than any other treatment in adults with severe depression. But wether depression is mild or moderate, psychotherapy alone may be the best treatment.
