Oxidative stress: Pissibly yes. Individuals who suffer with mdd display lower serum/plasmatic total antioxidant potentials and reduced brain gsh levels. Ferh et al 2012 showed substantial data support that mdd seems to be accompanied by elevated levels of oxidative stress and that antidepressant treatments may reduce oxidative stress. Antixidants, b'12, deplin , onega3 calcium and d may help in this recovey.
