SOME people seriously NEED meds to even themselves out.....others just need to talk about things.....pretty much the whole world is looking for excuses to take some kind of drug, so if you think you NEED some sort of pills, then go about it the right way and go get a script for them.....
instead of trying to numb the pain with pills why not try counselling? if you are still in school there are counsellors at schools, i forget what theyre called but i think theyre called student counsellors. if you are out of school then you can talk to a psychiatrist. its nothing to be ashamed of and it might make you feel better about what ever you are going through. also a psychiatrist could give you some perspective that you didnt see before
You can't just "take meds" to deal with depression.. Nor can you just "get a prescription". You must see a qualified specialist that will assess your symptoms and render a diagnosis.. After that, they may, or may not prescribe meds, based on your assessment.. Please see your family physician first who can get you a referral for services, if needed.. Good luck..
It depends on what type of pills you are thinking of taking. Antidepressents are fine, as long as you can speak with a therapist as well. But pills are short-term, and the dose needs to be increased as time goes by. Perhaps try in conjunction with a therapist and hopefully things can begin to get sorted out before you'd need an increase. Don't worry-it would take a long time before you'd need a higher dose. But I would stay far away from the street drugs-they'll make things way, way worse for you.
Go to a Doctor tell him how you are felling. And if you need help do what he tells you to do.I wood rother see someone get help than be unhappy their whole life. some people don't no what they are talking about untilled they find themselves in the same fix.
Mr..many have valid points here but through experience I can tell you, anxiety and depression are real illnesses that need professional help for most people. You just can't say " I am depressed so should i take pills?" You go to a doctor, tell him/her what you are feeling, discuss your family history [depression is a chemical imbalance that can be inherited] and you must discuss all issues the doctor feels pertinent to your case. You may just be in a bad way that will pass or you may be in true depression and you DO need meds for that. The doctor will monitor you often to see what you are feeling. This is the safe and proper way to take care of your mental and physical state.Goid bless..,Oh..prayer is powerful ..I combine both.
my dr. prescribed Zoloft for me after i read the side effects i decided they were not for me suicidal thoughts violent ect. i gave them back to the pharm. always read the effects before taking any type of drug!
Umm.. normally depression pills are bad for you but I guess it just really depends what pill you take because I take Aventyl and its not bad for you at all and it seems like they really do help.. a lot! so yeah, I recommend Aventyl :)
Some people have neurological and hormonal disorders and they Do need medicine to control it. Some depressions are not only psychological but physiological. My advice for you.... go to the doctor, don't prescribe anything yourself until you know for sure what is going on.
