Very interesting and important here I think. I would also like to recommend that you talk to your doctor and find out which medicine would work better for you. I am sure that you will find a lot of working and trusted anti depression meds, but please be careful with such stuff and take care!

There is no single cause. Rather, depression likely results from a combination of factors: • Depression is a mental illness that tends to run in families. Women with a family history of depression are more likely to have depression. • Changes in brain chemistry or structure are believed to play a big role in depression. • Stressful life events, such as death of a loved one, caring for an aging family member, abuse, and poverty, can trigger depression. • Hormonal factors unique to women may contribute to depression in some women. We know that hormones directly affect the brain chemistry that controls emotions and mood. We also know that women are at greater risk of depression at certain times in their lives, such as puberty, during and after pregnancy, and during perimenopause. Some women also have depressive symptoms right before their period. Depression after childbirth is called postpartum depression. Hormonal changes may trigger symptoms of postpartum depression.
