    Britain has recently changed its recommendations, saying that antidepressants should not be used as first-line therapy for depression, that they are just not that effective, and they have all these side effects according to author and journalist Robert Whitaker as he noted in a 2010 interview that he did with Joseph Mercola, DO.

    Doctors in Britain are now writing prescriptions for exercise for depression.

    The number of doctors writing prescriptions for exercise was 4% in 2007, and now is 25%.
