Sadly i have some experience with psych meds. Many can be very helpful and they're there because they've been proven to work for what they treat.
So trying meds is a perfectly good option if you have recurrent issues without them.
The one thing I'd encourage you to do is:
*Research the hell out of any medicine you take
*keep a day/time log of doses
*keep a mood journal.
These things can help you evaluate how well meds work for YOU. They can also be very helpful when talking to any doctor.
Some stuff I took for a while, and I'll not name it for privacy reasons, had some horrendous side effects when I decided to STOP taking it. Turned out it was about 8 months of hellish withdrawal. Had I researched the stuff before taking it, this wouldn't have been surprising.
At this point I take zero meds for anything. And won't unless it's an emergency situation. Nothing wrong with needed medicines, but I personally hate the hell out of stuff that treats symptoms rather than the core problem causing them.
I suspect you're the informed type cause if you aren't you wouldn't have asked the question.
Best of luck!
