Question: Is There a Cure for Depression?
Answer: Right now there is no cure. Antidepressants correct the chemical imbalance only for the time you are taking them. As we come to understand it more, I think there will be a cure, or at least treatments that are more tolerable and more targeted to the actual problem. Right now, treating depression is a bit like trying to perform a delicate surgery with a butcher knife. It works, but you get a lot of unpleasant side-effects. I envision that future treatments will become more like scalpels than butcher knives.
