Subject: RE: BS: Anti-Depressants / Getting off of
By the way, I don't necessarily buy into the thought that drugs can't cure depression, only mask it. Depression is a chemical imbalance, sometimes triggered by something, and drugs can right that balance, so I wouldn't be so quick to disregard their effect. But there are other ways of dealing with things too, yes, and making adjustments to lifestyle is one other way. But drugs don't necessarily just mask problems, they can be the thing that gets you through.
