Hello Francesco. I think you might be interested in reading an article by Giovanni Fava that appeared in the February 2003 issue of THE JOURNAL OF CLINICAL PSYCHIATRY. The title is "Can Long-Term Treatment with Antidepressant Drugs Worsen the Course of Depression?" I understand what you're saying about not wanting to hear "wishful thinking." Actually, it's important to have hope; however, denial is of no help. There is some of that on this board, but I think it's much more prevalent on other message boards that I used to spend time on. I've actually seen some posters desperately trying to convince themselves that amphetamines are neuroprotective. They feel assured if they find one reference for one study suggesting the possibility of what they're hoping for; meanwhile, they conveniently ignore the thousands upon thousands of other studies pointing to amphetamines' neurotoxicity.
