I'm actually asking this for my friend (seriously, lol). His mother died about two and half years ago. At first he had a really hard time with it, failing classes (he's in college) and basically fucking up at life. He was better for a while, but now it's all coming back. He doesn't want to hang out with friends much, he has no sex drive (says his gf), and he's sad and crying constantly. He's afraid he might need to go on antidepressents but isn't sure about going on medication that messes with his head. He sees a shrink at school now. Does anyone have any advice about antidepressents in a situation like this?
