    Antidepressants

    hello,
    I was recently informed on antidepressants and was also about 2 years ago when i was hospitalised for attempted suiside and depresion and was just wondering if there is anybody that can tell me if they are taking it if it is working if it is worth it to try or if I am better ti stick with my therapie and the depression will just go away with time??? I am confused and wish to have some insight and information from people that are using any antidepressants before I consider it
    thanks ashley

    Ashley:

    You have described struggles with depression, self-injury, and an eating disorder. While medication is not the whole answer for any of those, the SSRI medications (serotonin boosters) are helpful in treating all three problems. Given that you have all three problems, I would strongly suggest you discuss this with your doctor(s).

    antidepressants

    St. John's Wort has some potentially serious side effects and interacts with a number of other medications, including things as common as birth control pills.

    In my opinion, no one should be taking herbal remedies of any kind without first consulting with their doctors about potential side effects, medical status complications, and other drugs the individual may already be taking.

    I would be particularly worried about the use of these herbal remedies in someone who has a serious eating disorder, since in all likelihood that person's metabolites and neurochemistry are probably already seriously imbalanced.

    "Natural" or "Herbal" does NOT necessarily mean safe!
