depression

Another q reminded me of this. How does someone with no mental health insurance get prescriptions for stuff that will help. I feel that I definitely need help but I can manage without.. I'm stuck...

  • If you have prescription coverage a family doctor can prescribe anti-depressants. You don't need a therapist, and your prescription drug coverage will pay.

  • well, you could get on medicaid maybe. Or you could see if there is anything that you could afford like a off-brand or whatever.

  • Find a clinic with a sliding scale. Taking anti-depressants without therapy is like taking painkillers for a broken leg without a cast.
