I've been suffering from depression for over 3 months now, and have probably had underlying depression for at least 5 years now. I am currently undergoing CBT treatment and have done for the last 3 months, but with little success. I am thinking about approaching my GP to discuss prescription medication for helping me get back to a positive frame of mind, but am very anxious about how strong they are, the side effects and how long I will need to be on them. I wondered if anyone out there has had success with them and if they have now found it possible to live happily without them?
Thanks in advance.
