Whether you need antidepressants or not is a topic that should be discussed with your medical professional. There are also many medications available depending on the situation so don’t make the decision yourself. The professional might also recommend therapies before prescribing medication; however generally in certain situations when the depression is super severe, medication is recommended. But with other medications there are also side effects, so doctors need to weigh these pros and cons, especially because antidepressants have negative effects on the brain if you’re also under constant stress. Some antidepressants however can also reverse the effects and support your brain, and sometimes it’s the only way to get better.
