How does the straight edge philosphy account for perscription drugs like antidepressants and behavioral modification drugs?  Are you still edge if you take these kinds of drugs to handle and "better" society and yourself?
Would love some well thought out feedback.
Thanks for your time.

Straight edge is opposed to self destructive drugs, not all chemicals in general.
To be straight edge you do not drink, not even beer, you don't smoke, you don't take hard drugs.

If a substance is considered a "drug" but is not self destructive (such as caffeine) then it's perfectly fine and it's up to you weather or not you want to abstain from it.  Furthermore, Straight Edge is about living a healthy life style.  If you are on medication then Id advise that you take that medication.  Staying off of what a doctor prescribed you may be even more detrimental to your health.  If you feel that you could live a better healthier life with out medication then go for it.
It's really up to you.

SxE is having control over your life. Don't be stupid, if the doctor prescribes drugs, take them.

Yes, that means you can drink a beer or two...just don't be a dumb-ass jock about it.
