I quit taking medication cold-turkey. I took a lot more than just depression medication, for other health problems as well, but they all made me feel worse it seemed.
Its been about 6 months since I've taken any and for the most part I don't have any problems. I still get angry/depressed/anxious/ect but far less often, and I have found that going out to my pony or rabbits, or exercising relieve it and get me back to being okay.
All I changed was my diet and exercise routine. It fixed more than just my mental/emotional problems, a lot of my health problems ceased as well and I am now steadily gaining weight. (A good thing)
Cut out all the bad foods in your diet. I don't mean never eat a cookie again, just do so in moderation. And keep up with steady exercise. Yoga is fantastic, walking, jogging, swimming, anything is great. Those two things together will make you feel better, and make your body to be healthier. (:
