The younger you are, the more difficult it is for you to accept taking medicine. Most young people tell us that they want to get better using their own mental resources and strength rather than taking the help of a medicine. I accept that and will support you wholeheartedly, if that is in your best interest.
However, if it is clear that the emotional and behavioral problems which are troubling you are due to an illness/biochemical dysfunction in the brain, and if there is no single identifiable cause of this distress/illness; then medicines have been shown to be the best way forward. Research across the world, both in developed as well as developing countries, has clearly shown that persons who take medicine even after getting better have upto 80% reduced chances of having the same problems again in future. That is 4 times less than those who choose to leave the medicine when they get better.
With your whole life/ career before you, would you choose to prevent any further chances of problems by taking medicines or would you take a calculated risk and stop medicine?
