I would not be so quick to discredit your experiences. I am convinced that exposure to some psychiatric drugs results in changes in brain function that can persist after they are discontinued.

How is your condition different now compared to before drug treatment? Which drugs do you feel are most responsible for these changes?

It is important to note that Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) tends to get worse over time in untreated individuals. It also has a tendency to morph in a way where melancholic thoughts recede and cognitive impairments predominate. I believe that when MDD first emerges in late-life, it also looks a lot like dementia.

1. How old are you?

2. At what age did MDD appear?

3. What was the course of your illness before treatment? Was it chronic or recurrent?

4. Are there any first-degree relatives with depression, bipolar disorder, or schizoid disorder?
