Our expert says:
Antidepressants do not, ever, make someone happy. Psychotherapy, including CBT, can sometimes help to do that. Antidepressants can help to reduce Depression if it is present and properly diagnosed, and if they are used properly and in the right doses. Where one has problems in how one deals with life and other people, in understanding why one chooses to be miserable about an OK life, psychotherapy, not chemicals, can help a lot.
