Antidepressants in Ask the Community Posted January 1 · Report reply Question for those in the community who have or are using antidepressants. I started seeing a therapist a few months ago, which has been helping a lot. I made it clear that I wasn't interested in taking antidepressants from our first session since I've been again personal use of it my whole life. After talking to a relative about her life changing experience after taking antidepressants, I've changed my mind about its use and am scheduled to meet with a psychiatrist to possibly get a prescription. I'm just wondering how others experience with antidepressants were? Are there risks? Are they dangerous? Does it really help with any possible underlying problems, or does it just act as a helping hand during a difficult time? Any general comments? I know this is a game quitters forum and I'm not asking this question to see if its use will make it easier for me to quit gaming. I'm looking for an answer on how it really just effects your mood, condition, happiness/sadness levels, and life in general.
