Depression/Anxiety/Panic Attack - Caused by H/A?

We have a family history of depression, anxiety, panic attack, bipolar.  I have been on Indocin, & then Vioxx for H/A for over a year now, & there has been a marked improvement in depression, anxiety, etc.
Is there a relation between the NSAID's & treatment of depression, anxiety & panic attack?  Conventional medications  just made me worse, & the "talking cure" didn't do much either.
The longer I stay on the Vioxx the better I feel, yet the effectiveness of the med should be realized within a short time frame & I have been on this for more than 1 yr.

Neither of those medications are prescribed for anxiety or depression but both have a generally good effect on mood because of their effect on brain centers.  As long as you need them for an appropriate medical condition, you are find, but be concerned about long term use and dosage.
