Antidepressants
Posted by By: Dr. Laura Berman on August 09 2018
Dr. Berman, I have a friend who went through a pretty bad break up and the Dr.’s prescribed her some anti depressants. I understand that it was supposed to be for a short time only, but she has now been on them for over a year. She is always popping them and is not in therapy. She calls them her happy pills, but I think that they are just masking her pain and that she needs to get into therapy and not just medicate. I am worried about her. Are there consequences of staying on anti- depressants without dealing with the underlying problem? Thanks, April
