My Own Personal ChoiceI have no comment about other peoples' opinions and choices in this matter, but my personal choice is that I am adamantly against antidepressants. My reasons are quite simple:
1. My Mom tried many different types, and none helped. Eventually, she OD'd on her psych meds to successfully kill herself.
2. I have tried several, none of which work. The last time I tried to take the meds, I started having auditory hallucinations, and I became so paranoid that I could not leave the house. I stopped taking them, but the side effects lasted another week or so with me feeling absolutely insane.
3. I think all drugs are poison, basically, and I prefer trying natural remedies.
