On this theme, wouldn't it also make sense to see a therapist if I do start anti
-depressants? I thought it was better to be monitored.
Finally, I am worried that anti
-depressants might affect me beyond my symptoms. I'm not looking for something to come into my life and change my mood, sleep patterns, concentration, and so on.
I guess the bottom line is that, like anyone, I don't want to be on meds unless I need to be. In this case, evaluating that need seems really complicated.
