Depression
My boyfriend has a very bad depression. He says that medication does not help but I am sure that there must be something that can help him. He sleeps alot, has excessive guilty feelings talks about whether life is worth living (he thinks about this ever other day). He also has no interest in sex, lost interest in life in general. I have a friend at work who is using Cipramil. Would this help for him as I am really scared that he will do something to harm himself if he stays this depressed. He got divorced a year ago and he does not see his daughter, pays big money for maintenance which are all things that add to this.

Lisa, Cipramil® is an excellent antidepressant and a good choice if he is depressed. If you mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za, I’ll mail you something on depression as soon as my virus problem has been sorted out. Good luck.
