Hi, Sharon! It's not uncommon for anti-depressants to *poop out* on you after taking them for long periods of time. You're taking a high dose as is so a dosage increase probably isn't in order.
You might want to talk to your doctor about Abilify (aripiprizole) or Rexulti (brexpiprazole) which are both add-ons that work on their own and also booster the effects of your antidepressant.
I had GREAT results taking Abilify with my other meds.
Good luck and best wishes! Wildcat
