So, I'm on Lexapro right now but there's something that's always bugged me about antidepressants. It just doesn't make sense to me. If depression is a chemical imbalance in your brain, why is it that counseling works? It seems that if depression is a illness like any other, like heart disease for instance, as the doctors tell me then counseling shouldn't work. I mean, you don't send someone with heart disease to a counselor as treatment. It just seems so contradictory and it makes me feel as if medication is just a crutch, like I should be doing something else and because I can't I have to be on meds. I don't know if this makes sense. I'm just trying to decide if I want to continue on medication.
