Is there a drug like Zoloft that you can buy over the counter? I need something to help me through a couple of days of tough times.

Hello Johnny,

In regards to actual medicine there really isn't going to be anything that is going to be over the counter that you can pick up. The reason for this is that drugs that are used for anti depressant purposes often have both an addictive nature and side effects that can cause suicidal tendencies.

What I can say is that there are some "natural supplements" that claim to have anti-depression benefits. If you are just looking to get through a small window where you don't have a prescription filled this may be the best route for you to try. Here are a couple of supplements that I found that are claimed to help.

- Sam-e
- Tryptophan
- Saffron
- Turmeric And Curcumin
- Acetyl-l-Carnitine
- Arctic Root

In addition it is known that physical exercise leads to lower levels of depression. I'm not making any assumptions of whether you do or don't work out simply putting this out there in case it's a viable option to try for you.

While these may not be a permanent fix they are something that you can try if you are within a window between medication prescriptions. I hope this helps a little bit. If nothing else you can always come here to talk if that helps.
