Seriously dude don't take that shit. If you are depressed you don't need medication, you just need a big change in your life. I think that your mind is just feeling under-stimulated in your current environment. Just think of something you wanted to do or somewhere you always wanted to go and just do it. Maybe it will take a little bit of work but it will be worth it. You don't need any medication. If you've been smoking weed the whole time then just stop smoking weed. Weed will only make you really happy if you are already happy, it will make you sad and depressed if you are already feeling down.
I get where you're coming from and normally I'd agree, but not in this case. I'm going on meds / visiting a therapist for mostly anxiety and obsessive-thought related issues, depression is wrapped up in there but it isn't the main reason.
I've had this problem my entire life. Literally since I was about 6. It's not constant but it's off and on. It also runs in my family, my dad and sister suffer from nearly the exact same thing I do, it just shows in different ways. I can handle it on my own, and it's not completely disabling, I've just had enough. The weed has very little to do with it, I quit for about 2 months over the summer and being both off and on it felt the same way (it definitely does not help, I've basically cut back to being a completely social smoker as of the last 4 months). I'm just sick of this, I want to try something I haven't tried before which is medication. I've been in and out of therapy at various stages in my life and that stuff is really just a bandaid.
Trust me, it took a long time for me to give in and actually try some medication. My dad has been telling me it'd probably help for a long time now, like the past 4 years or so and I just kept refusing. I'm going on a very low-dose regimen of something mild.
