This is an interesting question. In the States, reporting that a medication feels good is to be absolutely avoided w/ most practitioners. For example, when treating a chronic pain condition, I told my doctor at the time that tramadol was mood positive. (In the context of most medications are wretched things to be endured.) He did not like this!

Conversely, AP's make me feel so out of it and very 'high'. They have been pushed on me, and I don't like them. The categories of virtuous and illicit medication are ironic. There was a stink here that prisoners were 'abusing' Seroquel. So that was taken away. We are a puritan lot.

Getting into a creative zone is a relief. Laughing w a friend until my stomach hurts is beautiful. They leave an afterglow of satisfaction that can take me through the day. These are things that can seem out of reach during a depressive episode. Personally, I wouldn't deny anyone a jumpstart.
