Anyone had any luck with anti-depressants? Care to share your experience of medications of choice, positive effects, side effects, etc?
In my own experience, I was on an SSRI after my father died but it was mostly prescribed to curtail my anxiety (fear of death of self or loved one resulting in irrational and antisocial behavior). I've often found that for myself depression mostly takes work on my part to change behaviors and self destructive habits and thoughts, to remove myself from triggers, and to be proactive about self care and self love. The meds can help but the sufferer has to put in the work (sounds daunting just writing it out!). So, I'm just wondering if I should plough through or get some help from modern science.
Thank you in advance for your responses.
