Hello all! I wanted to seek some advice here regarding usage of anti depressants and their effects on stage performance/ major auditions. I may want to be taking some big orchestra auditions the next quarter or so, but depression's been bogging me down for the past year, like, severe PTSD? often wishing i wouldn't wake up the next day.. well it's a struggle that is hard to define in words. being musicians, i'm sure you all understand.
My doctor prescribed me Bupropion some time ago, but I'm hesitant to start because of the potential damaging effects to my mental agility required for orchestral auditions. ( and i'm not sure if those effects exist in the first place)
What do you guys think? I was hoping some wonderful violinists here have experience with this! Please help! Thank you. Happiness to all. :)
