Our expert says:
As Maria points out, often you need the meds to start lifting the depression before CBT has a good chance of working, if you have a really deep depression. Also, unless you really commit yourself to doing what CBT requires, it wouldn't be able to work.
And, also as Maria says, one needs to wait 2-3 weeks to see if any AD is going to work for you, and may need to try 2 or 3 to find the one that suits you best. Persist in your efforts, because you CAN beat this depression, and again start injoying life
