Well, this is only anecdotal, but I think mine does.
After deciding to try pharmaceuticals about five months ago, I realized how depressed I'd been for--well, many years. A therapist suggested that my depression had started in adolescence, and I realized she was right. For me depression leads to self-hatred leads to severe rejection sensitivity. When my meds are working I guess I can notice things that I might find rejecting, but I balance them with the caring things that I can also see. When depressed, I don't see caring, and if I do, it makes no difference.
