No. The only thing near an AD which is available without prescription is St John's Wort, a herb which has effects like a milder version of Prozac. It's not cheap, can interact unhelpfully with some important med drugs, and only helps some people with MILD depression. Best to see a doc for assessment to check the diagnosis and get a good generic antidepressant which may be cheaper than the Wort

You can try St Johns Wort. It can be used for depression, anxiety and insomnia.
