In brief: Meditation mental
Meditation can help in many cases to resolve depression or other mental problems.
Many of my patients did get off medications while many need to continue both modalities. Talk to your doctor to be sure and safe. Meditation = self hypnotism, and can be very powerful depending on how well you were trained in it. Avoid to make decisions without your doc's advice.
