Should I be honest with my therapist?

I've got an appointment with a psychiatrist because I need some help dealing with depression. Got pretty much every symptom on the check-off list, but my most debilitating problem is lack of sleep. Am a little worried about revealing my history with drugs. Six years ago I was a daily meth user, and I lived like that for several years. Haven't touched it since, but I'm afraid if I reveal this to my doctor she will be hesitant to prescribe the sort of anti-depressants that might make me feel better. Should I be completely honest, or downplay my past drug use?
