Stay on meds: It is important that you stay consistent on your drug regimen. Any changes should only be done by the physician.

Most people have: up's and down's. Depression medications should not prevent normal feelings. However, many people who have depression, become worried that their symptoms are worsening or recurring - if they feel down. In time most can come to distinguish normal emotional reactions from unhealthy depression. If you are not taking meds consistently - need to work on that. Take care.
