Dependent on Meds?

I'm not sure if I should post this here or on the BC boards, but here goes..

I was on Yasmin for about 9 months, quit taking it about 2 months ago. I was on Yasmin about 6 years ago for 3 months. Both times I had to stop because of finances. I was originally perscribed Yasmin b/c I complained of horrible, crippling cramps, severe mood swings and depression. So 6 years later my new Gyno put me back on Yasmin because I said I never had any problems with it.

It worked wonders for me... every negative menstral symptom I ever had diminished or seemed to disappear and other things improved. As I said, I had to end it b/c it was one expense I had to cut out.

Now my problem...

I'm back to my old, depressed, moody self again during "that time." I know the easy solution is to start using the pill again, or at least to try another one. I know BC pills have their benefits, but taking them long term still scares me a little bit. I don't want to be dependent on a medication to feel like myself again.

It would be different if I felt this way all the time. Actually, sometimes I get depressed for like 3 days before my period, during and then for a couple days after... almost 2-3 weeks out of the month... it varies.

So do I go back on Yasmin or on an anti-depressant?! I don't want to be on meds at all if I don't have to be...

I'm not really sure what I'm looking for with this post.. suggestions, words of wisdom, similar experiences, home remedies?!?! I don't know...any replies are welcome and appreciated. :/
