its not good to take pills that are not perscribed to you. yeah, they could make you feel worse, any antidepressants could do that. it is really not a good idea for your friend either because those are her pills and she needs to have her perscribed dose. the best thing for you to do is to talk to your doctor about getting some antidepressants for yourself. maybe you could ask your friend to go to the doctor with you for support

We do not fear death, we fear that no one will notice our absence. That we will disappear without a trace.

It's never a good idea to take medication that isn't prescribed to you. Firstly, it's actually illegal (in the UK it is anyway, not sure about where you are!). Secondly,when people are first put on anti depressants they are monitered very closely for side effects etc. If you take your friends medication you will not be being monitered by a professional. I can't say whether you do or don't have depression but you may not actually have the condition in the first place, you may feel depressed but that doesn't mean you have the clinical condition of depression. Do you understand what I mean? If you think you are suffering from depression then I would really recommend you talked to your doctor about it. This way you can get some help and support for yourself and if you do need treatment for any condition then they can figure out a suitable plan of action. If you want to talk to someone about it, feel free to PM me as I suffer from depression myself. I hope this helps
