If you were given a magical elixir that would make you never have depressed feelings, would you take it?

Tricky.  In a depressing world it is appropriate to feel depressed, but what's the point of living if you don't enjoy it?  Pretty much a Truth or Beauty question.

Before I drink this elixir I have a few questions:

Is it possible to feel compassion for someone who is depressed if you have never experienced the feeling? Will this elixir take away my memories of feeling depressed myself?

And on a more practical note: Will I have to take it for the rest of my life or only one time? Are there side-effects?

I think this elixir already exists for some people, they call it alcohol. When you're three parts to the wind, who cares???
