In brief: It depends
Depending on how you were feeling without the antidepressants, it may be a very helpful thing.
Depressed people often have trouble concentrating and making decisions -- 2 things that could hamper your studies. If the antidepressant was prescribed by your doctor after a thorough assessment, and you are not using additional substances with it, it could help any depressive symptoms that you have.
