I also find myself more than a little amused when I see ads for anti-depressants that state that possible side-effects may include things like: insomnia, headaches, acne, loss of appetite, irregular heartbeat, sexual side-effects, nausia and possible dry mouth.
If that lot doesn’t make you depressed, then you clearly weren’t to start with.
