I agree that there are usually other things to try, but I also know that the complications from meds make it extremely difficult for some. Meds come with desired and undesired effects. I believe I should have been on meds a long time ago, and perhaps my depression wouldn't have gotten so bad if I had, but I also think that if someone feels their depression is manageable without meds, ie it doesn't impact their life that much, and they want to work on it through therapy, that is possible the route to take. I am encouraged by recent news of new and different ways of treating depression that are being researcned. That gives me hope, because as I have made my way through different meds, I have gotten more and more discouraged. I am one of those people that someone described earlier in this thread that was on a suboptimal dose for a long time. It addressed the depressed to a degree, but not sufficiently. And the depression just kept getting worse. I think if one is to go the meds route, they should make sure to be on a fully therapeutic dose for them, because I think it is worse to be partially medicated over a long period of time. I think it makes the meds less and less effective. This is based on my own experience, not any research knowledge.
