Can't shake depression

Postby Saratonin » Sat Apr 23, 2016 2:04 am

I've been on various medications for 12 years and I'm still not 100%. Currently, I'm taking 60mg of Cymbalta, 300mg of Wellbutrin, and Trazadone to sleep. The last couple days I've been depressed. I don't know what else to do. I'm afraid to complain to my pdoc, because nothing seems to work or work for very long. I've been on Lexapro, Effexor, Prozac etc. I was diagnosed with MDD & anxiety. What do I do next?

I saw an article about "truth in labeling" for prescription drugs. One of the things the article wanted manufacturers to do is tell how effective their drugs are. Think of cures for headaches ... we have tons of brands and types of delivery systems, even before we get to the prescription drugs.

Once you understand there is not one drug that will work all the time you can start creating plans for moving from where you are ... what are you going to do to move forward? What are you not going to do to go backward?


Best Wishes.
