medication for depression is absolute bullcrap I've been on it for years it hasn't made me feel better nor worse. tbh i think its just a plocebo effect. depression cant be cured, you can only find ways to cope to make okay. its hard. its so so hard trust me i know. after years of self hate and self harm i found my way out through music. everyone has different coping mechanisms you just have to believe and find it.

I'm sorry you feel that way but I'm glad you found your own way out.
Medications have to show an effect better than placebo in order to be licensed. The problem with antidepressants is that for mild to moderate depression they don't perform better than placebo, things like lifestyle changes and therapy are more effective. However, for severe depression they can be extremely useful.
You might want to get checked for MTHFR gene mutation. There's some evidence that 70% of people with severe depression who don't respond to antidepressants have this. I've been looking into this recently and found it very interesting.Last edited by Sabertooth; 26-10-2017 at 02:12.
