CBT is superior to medications

I was on several antidepressant with moderate sucess. I took effexor for 2 years, then Paxil for 1.5 years. Boy the side effects were tough. Then I bought Dr. Burns' book and read 10 pages a night. It was like a lightbulb went off in my head. My thinking patterns were distorted, and with the techniques in the Burn's book I corrected the self defeating behavior. No more medication for me, off for 3 years.

I suggest everyone here stopped obsessing on the medications and put some effort into therapy. The medications are just a crutch, a temporary bandaid, placebo. All you people need is alittle time on the therapist couch. It will cure depression and anxiety.
