Our expert says:
NObody should EVER be placed on " a light dose of antidepressants". If someone isn't properly diagnosed as Depressed or suffering from another specific Anxiety Disorder shown to respond to ADs, then they shoulddn't take any such drug ; if they ARE properly diagnosed, then the only correct dose is the right dose. Lower than usual doses are useless, and a waste of money.
Anyhow, your response suggests that the ADs were useful to you. But from the sound of it, what you really need is some counselling, preferably Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ( CBT ) to work on identifying the causes and triggers for your stress, learning how to eliminate them and how to respond better of those than can't be avoided. Check with FAMSA< which I believe can provide counselling at a cost related to your financial situation
