My comment didn't address what the OP should do at all
You said drugs help, if you stay on them. You're saying that if the OP's friend goes on medication, that she should stay on it, because it will help. That's an armchair prognosis. You really have no idea if it will help.

Of course not, let's reiterate first port of call is your Dr, everything else is anecdotal and/or speculative, might be helpful might not; we're all guilty of either arm chair prognosis, prescription or personal observations. As I said in the first post I made, go see a Dr, he'll hopefully recomend a specialist, the rest is just a little bit of advice that may or may not be useful, feel free to mention a pinch of salt here.

At the end of the day we're all trying to be helpful, and that's never a bad thing if we define our observations merit and recommend the alternatelly obviously better step, have I mentioned a trip to the Dr.

Nope, don't put words in my mouth. I'm saying that, independent of the advice to the OP, I know for a fact from personal experience that it helps in the long-term - (though that does not mean it helps everyone).

It would be foolish for anyone (including you) to interpret a discussion of long-term effects as pertaining directly to the OP's question, since, duh, they'd first have to get on the meds.
