Meed medication for depression and anxiety caused due to intake of marijuana

I have symptoms of general anxiety, depersonalization and derealization due to teenage marijuana use. I do not wish to be put on anti-depressants or ssri s dude to the fact that they have horrid side-effects and overall I do not feel that I am depressed or unhappy. Could you recommend any other medications?

dear

SSRI has the best medication for depression till date

have u feel side effect???
or you just told on basis of internet surf or listed in some sites??

it is medicines protocol while doing research to mention all

in practical it is not like this

so do not worry
just take it

if depression will become severe than it lead to mental or psychological disability and impairment in functioning
so dear do not take litely if you have side effect than consult a doctor

now a days new antidepressant agomelatine in market which has less side effect
try that
but it is not effective as SSRI
among SSRI escitalopram and serteraline are safest
get well soon
take care
