Well if you want to get out of the depression ther are other ways to be tried..drugs are the last can join some hobby or anything which keeps you busy,engage in a rigorous work schedule so that you donot have time for negative thoughts...take occassional breaks and give your body rewards and you will never feel depressed ever...
