    (AP) The largest study ever done on treating depression has found that patients who didn't get well with the first medicine they tried had a good chance of succeeding the second time around.

    Up to one-third of those who added or changed medicines recovered from the crushing illness that is America's top mental health problem, researchers said.

    This is good news by itself, but the bigger picture is even more encouraging, doctors say. When viewed with earlier results, the new findings mean that roughly half of people who suffer from depression can get over it — not just improve their symptoms — with adequate medication.

    That is very good. I know too many people who suffer with depression.
