While it is sad that he is gone, I think his death resulted in depression finally being a topic of conversation, at least for awhile. It makes you wonder, if someone who seemed so happy can be so depressed, how many others are out there? Thank you for taking this subject on.

Excellent observation. Depression is tragic on so may levels. Hopefully, Robin Williams' family will chose to share the related medical findings as circumstances surrounding his suicide are investigated. Understanding & sharing his past and present medical and psychological treatments/details will help others as they face similar challenges. Robin's legacy, if given the opportunity, to help so many suffering with depression after his death would surpass his remarkable life of bringing laughter to millions.

One problem I have noticed is that doctors treating pain along with depression forget about the interactions between the "pain killers" and the antidepressants. My partner was prescribed such a "stew" of medications that I thought he had had a stroke for awhile. It turned out that the different prescriptions were keeping him in a fog and producing side effects like slurred speech, memory loss and changes in mood and behavior.

So true…..the cycle of complication deepens as Opioid Painkillers are known to create many imbalances including changes to serotonin levels which causes depression. Also, a side affect of antidepressant medication is, guess what……depression. The Sad Sad Sad result changes every fibre of being human from the physical to physiological and finally, the soul itself.
