I am struggling to figure out if I should start medication again for my anxiety and depression. What are signs that I should start medication instead of just doing therapy?

    Talk with your therapist and hear what their opinion is. A sign personally for me is when life still feels like a chore despite continuously going to therapy.

    I’m kind of the same boat I’ve been medication free for over a year my last experience was really bad I went into psychosis and I’m terrified not to scare you or anything it’s just my own experience I had such a horrible experience let alone the withdrawals were so bad but I know I need to be on something my depression is just declining and getting so bad

    If the therapy is not doing enough by itself and you're still experiencing a moderate to high amount of anxiety and/or depression it may be time for meds. Meds changed my life! When I'm on the right concoction, I'm much happier and a lot less stressed and anxious.

      I second that comment. Meds help me be able to get ANYTHING done. Otherwise I'm just a bump on a log. I know because when I forgot my meds, recently, I could barely function at all. It's definitely worth it, in my opinion
