Oh, I am so sorry, you have had a plateful. I wish I could give you advise but all I can do is perhaps make a few suggestions...
Maybe you need to get on different medications?
Perhaps you are suffering from Bipolar and having mood swings?
Perhaps you are drug resistant? There is a medication that helps your body to function better with antidepressants but I'm sorry I can not remember the name of it now.
Hello. As previously stated, you may benefit from medication adjustments, whether it be a different med or a dosage change. Have you related your feelings to your doctor? Is your doctor a psych professional, or a general practitioner? Please advise, and hang in there. You are not alone and there is hope. Take care, GM
I read your post again and you did not mention you have been in therapy, have you? Also, Mrarcollins mentioned Effexor in a previous post and I must agree with him. Of course everyone's body responds differently to medication but I can tell you it has helped me. I am currently on a combination of 300 mg. Effexor XR, 20 mg. Celexa and 3 mg. Risperdal and have had good response. I have been on phys meds for 25 yrs. and I must say the Effexor has helped me the best.
I looked up the name of the medication for drug resistant depression, it is Symbyax; you may want to give it a try. I hope you find something helpful soon, we are here for you if you need us. Take care Sweetie, Jude.
What is wrong with me? I am usually a very out going, life of the party kind of gal. But Lately I don't want to get out of bed, talk to anyone, even my bf (my sister) (she hasn't done anything to me) I took ten pills last night and can't figure out why I woke up?! I just want to die! What do I do?
