I understand this quandry; coming up on 20 years of psychotropic use for me.

However, if you have recurrent depression or bipolar disporder, ALL the evidence points towards a deteriorating course of illness. It's not even a 50-50 case, your brain & life will become increasingly damaged by the disease process. repeat, DISEASE PROCESS.

It has taken years for me to "get" this message. Having got it, I really feel for my shrinks (and the non-depressed) for whom it is blindingly obvious that i'm suffering from neuro-biological problems.

If, however, your depression is mild, or a one-time reaction to specific life events, then I don't think medication is a good choice.
