Answered by Shaykh Gibril F Haddad
Does Islam permit the treatment of depression with prescribed antidepressants plus psychotherapy (as well as dua, dhikr etc)?
Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,
Yes, the Prophet, upon him peace, said to seek treatments for ailments and antidepressants are some such treatments.
As for psychotherapy, the best advice is to seek a Muslim practitioner.
It is advised also to renew family ties and gift the entirety of a dhabiha (a sacrifice) to feed the poor with the intention of recovery.
