Im 29. I was put on antidepressants at the age of 14. I have not gone one day without them. For me, in my experience they have made it possible to lead a 'normal' life. I dont believe I would cope without them. I have a chemical imbalance that causes my Panic disorder and the meds, combined with therapy have been a lifesaver. Literally.
Hope you find the answers you need,
