I have taken antidepressants for years now. I seem to have the chemical imbalance that is spoken about. I have gone off them a few times and always
end up very depressed. I have worked on the "underlying issues" and believe in therapy, but working those things out didn't prevent the depression.
Even on the meds I can get situational depression........like when I lost my job and house due to the economy.
I have known at least three people who refused medications because they were warned off by
"friends" They all ended up committing suicide. Friends are not doctors, people who have had bad experiences with medications are not doctors, people
who have had good experiences are not doctors. I guess what I am saying is to try it, and make your own decisions based on your own experiences.
Best of luck to you.
