In reply to meds 'causing' depression?, posted by lucie lu on October 22, 2008, at 20:51:29
Don't fear depression, or whether it might worsen. You're seeking treatment, and that's a great thing to be doing.
There's a million possible reasons why depression might worsen. It's more constructive to just accept the meds are not climate control for the brain's mood. If it feels a little colder inside, take some time out from things, reduce your workload, and sip some chamomile.
Yeah, maybe it is worsening. Trying to determine why is unlikely to make it better focus instead on things that distract you. Join a meetup. (meetup.com). Explore new hobbies, interests, etc.
Whatever you do, don't do what I did (OCD over how my meds would affect it). It's just depressing to do that ;)
