The anti depression meds will have some side effects so be aware of them before you start taking them. They can change how you react to others and can cause you to not be yourself. I have heard of people who have taken the medication and have shown sign of anger and fits from it. So talk to your doctor and read everything on the drug he prescribes before you pop that first pill. Find out if it is addictive and try to stay away from getting addicted to it.
Stay away from alcohol and drugs -
Both alcohol and drugs used for recreational purposes will make it almost impossible for you to recover. So before you buy a book on depression or try to get cured of your depression it is important for you to not drink or do drugs.
