are there any over the counter anti depression medication?

I have diagnosed MYSELF with depression. Its not a suicidal depression, its just like, sad and pessimistic all the time. i push most friends away and i just put on a happy smile so people assume everything is dandy with my life. i work 2 jobs and go to school to escape depression, and it works, but when i come home, i feel this sadness, dark cloud, feeling. theres no major problems at home either. i have had this feeling off and on for about 2 years now. i have always been against anti depressants but there just comes a point where im tried of fighting. i really dont want to see a dr unless i really have too. i dont like disclosing my personal information to people. i dont mind posting on here because i will never talk to any of you prob ever again...

you diagnosed yourself? and when did you get your Ph degree? no you can not get anti depression meds over the counter. which is why a DOCTOR should be the one who diagnosed you.

Anti_Pop_Chic's answer is the right one. I was going to type almost exactly the same words, but read her answer & thought you will find total help from that. I have also proved that exercise works better than anything else. All the best.
