For someone who has clinical depression, it will work for some, like any med...
I've taken it before, and had no problems really, it worked great...
no side effects... I've known other people to take it also..
(Then of course I found out later that I didn't have just depression and shouldn't be on an antidepressant... bc when I took it again (bc it "worked" for me before) :) (well, it did work, brilliantly) it made me swing to the other end of the bipolar spectrum... which for me was normal - felt like my old bouncy self again - was great... but it's not good for people with bp, so I don't take it anymore...)
but otherwise, i didn't have any trouble with it at all..
Good luck for your girl.
