    Just saw this in an article on the BBC. The drugs are about to be trialed.

    "As one of the drugs is already available as a treatment for depression, the time taken to get from the lab to the pharmacy could be dramatically reduced."

    Seems that the drugs are Trazodone & DBM.

    Trazodone is an existing drug used for depression

    DBM must be the new compound.

    They are hoping that taken in combination it 'could' be significant.

    Let us pray that they succeed & soon. I think if the trials prove the drugs are effective then they will fast track development....but they have to make sure they are safe.

    I wonder if taking Trazodone on its own is worth considering?
