Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Antidepressants are not sos medicines and treatment requires regular use in adequate doses and regular psychiatric followup. The drugs don't change thinking, they just affect the mood state, and positive mood state encourages one to think positively. Follow up with psychiatrist allows for psychotherapy on short and long term basis. Your history is suggestive of mood instability with anxiety components. Please visit a psychiatrist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
