Best Medication For Mild Depression

I have an upcoming appointment with my doctor because I think i'm mildly depressed. I'm feeling very sad and overwhelmed with a feeling of doom about everything in my life. I am able to go through my day okay, but just feel this cloud hanging over my head.

I've read up on some comments on this forum about different medications and the effects they've had on people. I do not want a medication that will make me feel tired or gain weight.

What are some of your recommendations? :?: :?: :?:

Try "ST john's wort" it works good for mild depression, oh and also don't drink alcohol it tends to bring depressing thoughts back , just from my experience, its a real mood killer.
