This was said on writingforums.org about the subject of writing and depression.
Actually, one of the main reasons that they slowly pull someone off of anti-depressants is to allow their body to start taking over the job that the medication had previously been doing. They do this with any different kinds of medication. The anti-depressants are meant to keep certain chemical levels stable. When the body has had the chance to start creating those stable levels for themselves, they slowly move you off the medication, thus allowing your body/mind to be accustom to producing those chemicals on their own. And, yes, if they don’t do that, it can become an addiction.
How many ways can I say this is the comment from the biggest dumbass on the planet.

Untrue. If someone has clinical depression, then the body isn’t making receiving the proper chemicals. That’s not going to change just because of a medicine. The meds allow the body to receive them better.
As for the mind/body to be accustomed to make chemicals it doesn’t make or intake correctly? That comment speaks for itself about stupidity.
Just another case of discrimination on mental illness due to stereotypes.
