For many people, they start taking an antidepressant during an emotionally traumatic time in their life. But, years later these people are still on these medications suffering with antidepressant dependency and symptoms of withdrawal when trying to quit taking the drug. A serotonin deficit is the most commonly blamed cause of depression.
