Has the Church ever declared on anti-depressants and other such pills?

I often wonder if pills change the personality, the character, the humanity that God has given us. Isn't it an insult to God to say "thanks for this body, but I'd rather it was another way so I'll augment and correct your errors"? This is how I feel about such pills and corrective medicine. How restricting, how suffocating. What does Holy Church say, from its eagle-eye view, not my personal interpretation of life?

[b]A lot of people would be dead if they didn't take medications. Taken far enough, your reasoning would make medical care sinful - but the Bible praises physicians: see Ecclesiasticus (AKA Ben Sira) 38. Were the healing worked by Jesus sinful ? They can be said to have changed "the personality, the character, the humanity that God" gave people - no ? :) [/b]
