      Yes many on site seem to get a benefit from suppliments. I prefer to control my food intake, fruit and vegetables seem to help me with all their natural goodness. We eat upwards of seven portions a day

     I dont quite get what you mean but if its too late for you at 42 ( which it certainly is not) then where does that leave me at 70????

     Medication for dperession is supportive maintenance not cure, therapy is the only root to any level of cure, but you just need the right meds I think go to your doc

      LOL, gill. I'm in my fifties and have been recieving treatment for the last decade. One common comment I have heard from docs is that depression diminishes (not completely) as we age. Have you found that at all?

    Hi Patrik - no it's never too late to deal with depression. Give the meds time to work, be open and honest with the doc, keep a journal of how you feel if that helps. Things will get better. 

    Oh, to be 42 again...
