Hey guys! I was prescribed nexito 20 mg 3 years back ,took it for a month then quit it.Again took it after few months before stopping again. I've been doing this for quite a while because I feel antidepressants are hoax and that there are other ways to feel better . Please someone help me clear my doubts on medication. Are they irreplaceable?

It depends on what the problem is and depends on what medication.

I don't think you'd be posting this if your way was working.

SSRIs are a joke. The serotonin theory of depression was debunked years ago. SSRIs should be taken off the market.

No its not but I don't want to take medicines either. The doc says I've depression and anxiety and I dont know why but I don't want to put any effort in getting better .I just wish for things to end .

Anti depressants work for some. I know people who they say they've been really helpful.
So those who say they're a "hoax" should just stop getting their info off conspiracy websites.
Personally, they don't help me.

Many times things are chemical problems in brain. This is why drugs can help in many cases.
