Jacky, many people do take anti-depressants for basically all their lives. If it improves your quality of live, there is no reason to be without it. This is a decision you need to make yourself.

There are some OTC options - ST Johns Wort being one of them - that may help.

Otherwise I'd suggest asking your doctor to re-implement treatment.

All the best
