    You sfeeking talk your doctor about how you are feeling and ask his advice. There are many drugs for depression and after you have a diagnosis your doctor can prescribe something to help you. Let us know how you are doing. Good luck.

    Hi there and I'm sorry you are going through this... This is my personal opinion but you do as YOU feel is right for you. I am just battling coming back off of Prozac (fluoxetine) after only taking it this time for 6 days. It is the most HORRID drug to get used to or come off of. If at all possible, I would advise you to consider counseling rather than drugs. Drugs may be a quicker 'way out' but it does NOT solve the problem causing depression. You might even try visiting with a holistic doctor. Best wishes to you.

      It's everyone's choice whether or not they want to take meds and I don't agree with advice not to.  We are all different and what helps you might not necessarily help someone else and vice versa.

      The point about meds is that they can help you feel a bit better and more able to tackle your issues through counselling.  If you don't need them fine but others do.

      I agree with hypercat. I have been taking mirtazapine and venlafaxine since July 2015 and I've been doing great. My depression and anxiety have not been a problem since the meds reached their full effect. I enjoy my life and am so thankful I found what works for me.
