Are Antidepressants Highly Addictive?

Yes. The risk for dependency is present with all antidepressants, and any medication that you take long term. Your body can become physically dependent on antidepressants, and quitting “cold turkey” can cause withdrawal symptoms – symptoms that are characteristic of the traditional image of addiction.

Do Antidepressants Change Your Personality?

Yes. Not only have studies recorded evidence of a change in personality with antidepressant use, but your personality is constantly changing and evolving, along with your body and brain. Physicians who prescribe antidepressants are hoping that the chemical response in the brain will be a positive change, however the practice of pharmacotherapy for treating depression often involves ‘trial and error’ and dialing-in the correct dosage and type of antidepressant drug can take time.
