Removed by Admin - scaremongering. I have left the general discussion here but removed the posts from 9 years ago. Please remember that while a medication will never work for everyone, scaring people away from getting help is not acceptable here. If a medication is not working for you or you have concerns about it, this must be addressed with your medical doctor. Posts on this thread that suggest medication is 'bad' or that it is more dangerous for people to be medicated than deal with depression and suicidal ideation without treatment will be removed. The position of this forum is that depression is a medical condition that needs to be addressed by a doctor.
