Silicea does not work for everyone in the case of depression. There are many other great remedies for depression.
Suggest you consult a homeopath personally instead of just taking BFR. The homeopath will take your case history in detail which you might not find it convenient to post here.
Your depression can be treated safely and effectively. Alot of factors have to be known like the cause of it, your age, gender, are you under any medication etc. Many questions have to be answered.
Wish you all the best and be well again. Cheers.
