Should Christians take meds for their moods?

Dr. Grant MullenMoods 4 Comments

Are mood medicines secular?

Christians struggle with taking meds for depression, anxiety or mood swings.

They think it’s a faith issue.

They’ve been told, “A strong Christian should be able to control their thoughts without medications!”

So if they can’t, they feel shame and self condemnation for being so weak.

  1. I take medication for anxiety and have for many years. My thoughts are these are addictive. When I started I didn’t know that and when I found out now I sometimes feel condemnation because of this.

  2. I struggled with depression for years. YEARS. I grew up in a Catholic family that told me that I could ‘pray my way out of it’. Prayer didn’t work so I felt even more guilty and depressed. I suffered with depression to the point that I wanted to die and thought that my family would be better off without me. I met a Christian (non Catholic) friend who told me that she had been on anti-depressants for years and without them she was a mess. She prayed with me and coached me that God wouldn’t love me less if I took pills. It still took me 2 years before I was at the end of my rope and went to my doctor and asked for antidepressants. I had to try 3 different medications before I found one that actually worked. I was seeing a Christian psychologist at the time who lightly encouraged me to try medication. After a week of the third medication, I woke up and for the first time in my life, didn’t cry in the shower, didn’t have negative thoughts all day long, and finally felt like the sun was shining on me. I am so grateful to Dr. Mullen and his encouragement. I am a better person today. Praise Jesus.

    There is no need for all the shame and condemnation for taking mood meds. It’s no different than taking pills for thyroid or glasses for vision. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Medication has saved my life! I have actually been traumatized by some of the “Christian” comments that came my way when I was extremely sick with depression and anxiety. One pastor even told me that my house had spirits of murder in it and thats why I was sick. It took me a long time to accept that medication is a gift along with exercise, eating right, stress management, expressing emotions properly and having good relationships.
