I'm in the same situation, except I've been battling with major depression for a few years, but very bad this last year. I've been on 2 different meds for major depression plus anxiety medication. I think that it takes time to find the right medication. I know what you mean about the "up's" and "down's". It's like when I might start to feel better, there's a set back and that's hard. Hopefully you'll find the right medicine that will work for you.
I'm blessed to share with you wonderful people. in the first place you must trace the cause of depression. depression is emotional sickness so taking medication for it mostly does not cure it but just reduces it a bit. emotional sickness needs emotional healing.
Not sure how this works but I'm new an need help plzzz
