This survey is need of the hour considering there has been an increase in use of antidepressants in recent years both in New Zealand and around the world.

According to research, one out of eleven adults is prescribed antidepressants every year. Yet, there is not much research on the experiences of antidepressant use - symptoms, relief and side effects.

"We are interested in finding out about all the different experiences that people might have had with antidepressant medications. We would like to know about what symptom relief people experienced as well as any side effects they had. We are also keen to know more about their views on what causes depression and how helpful they believe antidepressants are in addressing these," researchers said.
