Ooh *the sound of can of worms opening*. Since this is off-topic, I'm not going to delve deep into this issue, but people who can benefit the most from SSRIs are usually the most unlikely demographic to partake in drug trials. However, everyone knows how to best deal with their special condition, and a licensed professional who knows the person is best equipped to evaluate possible need for medication, not random people (myself included!) on a forum.
It's worth a visit to a healthcare professional of any persuasion, at least.
