My son, age 29 experienced a life crisis a year ago (loss of his business,driver's licence and
financial ruin) that led to a severe depression and
two serious suicide attempts. This was the first time he ever experienced depression. He was hospitalized twice, once for a month and the second time for two months following the attempt on his life. Upon his discharge from the hospital in September, he stopped taking his medication - (effexor) due to many negative side effects.
