Many of us find ourselves getting a little blue when the seasons change. There are many different treatments for the winter-based seasonal affective disorder, including light therapy with sunlight or bright lights.

Light Boxes May Help Melt Those Winter Blues - NYTimes.com cites a 2006 multicenter double-blind randomized controlled trial that compared bright-light therapy with the antidepressant Prozac (fluoxetine) in 96 subjects. The study found that the two treatments were equally effective for alleviating winter depression, though light produced results faster, usually within a week, and with fewer side effects.
