It depends on how bad the depression is. Coming from someone who has depression and doesn't take the meds, I understand the reasoning. The medicine dulls my entire personality. It numbs all my moods. I may not feel sad or anxious, but I also don't feel happiness or excitement. The medicine also really messes with my sex drive. It lowers it completely. And then if I missed one day, I was a mess for a week. I stopped taking them because when I was a mess, and it was beyond worse than my normal bad spells. I am lucky enough to be able to control my depression with a good circle of people who support me and I also have coping skills for my bad days.
That being said, as long as I knew their depression didn't hit suicidal thoughts with every down mood they had, I would date the person. I could probably even help them find some coping skills of their own if they wanted.
