Okey, so I'm not sure how I'm gonna word this without picking a toe (which is not my intention) But it's just something I've been pondering on. When is the use of antidepressants for anxiety/depression a good thing and when is it a bad one? I mean, when someone is already very down possibly suicidal how do you go about it. The reason I'm asking is because it came up in therapy and my therapist asked if I would be open to meeting a psych for possible options. I'm not against it I just know that my parents will be (I'm over 18 though so shouldn't REALLY matter). Urgh, this is hard to word but I guess my mind thought is, the whole handing over a smoking gun dilema, and how that whole transition period works. It would take time for them to work (if they work) and there's no guarante that the person is actually taking them. I guess it's up to the person. But is that whole risk factor a concern at all? Ps: I wanna apolegize if this was to far or triggering, it's just obsess and need to pretty muc know everything when it comes to new things. I wanna be prepared when it comes up again.
