I don't know anything about your situation, but drugs are not fun, I agree. I had to take zoloft for anxiety/panic attacks for a while and just stopped cold turkey. (I'm a nursing student. They say nurses are the worst patients ) I didn't see many terrible side effects but I don't like drugs in general. I don't like having to take a pill 2X a day.
If you are very very depressed I would reccommend trying to stick out the drug for atleast a few weeks and see where that gets you. It takes about 3-8 weeks for some of them to have the desired effect. (I know that seems like an eternity.)
And, not to sound preachy, but exercise definitely is an anxiety/depression killer for me. It totally puts your mind on a clean slate, besides its other obvious health benifits. Vitamins, eat right,.. blah blah blah...I have to force myself to do these things on a regular basis, but its totally worth it. I haven't had major signs of anxiety or depression in a long time.
(Will read more when I have more time!!)
hang in there!
