Hi Bleauberry.

How do you define the word "depression" as you apply it? Semantics are critically important.

> I think it will be 50 to 100 years before the theories...both pro and con...can be debated with any sense of scientific body.

What theories? What do you mean by "pro and con"?

> I think it deserves mention...and this is significantly contrary to the beliefs of most everyone here...that depression is not a disease.

What about bipolar disorder (BD)?

> but in the support of ADs, the right one can actually reverse the disease...

What is the disease? Does major depressive disorder (MDD) count?

> it is possible for an AD to regulate the immune system

I should think it more likely that an AD helps reregulate the brain, which, in turn, regulates the immune system through the secretion of neuropeptides.
