I'd just try to keep the dose reasonably low and take brief breaks (say, weekends) and then consider taking longer periods off, such as Holidays.
For depression, I've heard that they're not a good solo option. Then again, they're used in tired, depressed elderly and sick people as monotherapy, so it can't be that bad. Just watch out for dosage escalation and keep your expectations reasonable (by reasonable, I mean relatively low--there's only so much an upper can do).
