I get the 'blues' every once in awhile, but I don't think I'm depressed. My thinking is, should I start so that the depression doesn't sink in and then I'm trying to dig myself out? Should I ask my primary/neuro to start me on an anti-depressant with the Rebif?? Just wondering what everyone else is doing.
In 1999, Duke University researchers demonstrated in a randomized controlled trial that depressed adults who participated in an aerobic-exercise plan improved as much as those treated with sertraline, the drug that, marketed as Zoloft, was earning Pfizer more than $3 billion annually before its patent expired in 2006.
