Antidepressants have been around for decades, but there is still much confusion about how they work and who should take them.  This week on WRVO's health and wellness show “Take Care,” hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Dr. Michael Hirsch, a psychiatrist and psychiatry instructor at Harvard Medical School about why these drugs are an important tool in fighting depression.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
