100% understand about fear of pharmaceutical drugs. But Accutane is still in a class of its own, literally.
That said, I am terrified to take much of anything, too. I read an article where one gal cycled through 10+ antidepressants after Accutane to no avail. I am trying to find the article. She was so young.
I know the time is coming where my parents and I are going to get into a big argument as I do not wish to go on an antidepressant right now. I feel like it will be throwing darts at the problem. I am going to the Cleveland Clinic soon. Should be interesting. I expect it to be more diagnostic than curative.
If anything try lithium orotate a natural form of lithium with no negative side effects , and stay far away from ssri's all you need is more poison in your system , not good.
