I've taken a quite a few different antidepressants over the years, tried different combinations and they all seem to make me feel the same way; flat, numb or zombified. I've talked in therapy (group and individual) for hundreds of hours at least but haven't gotten anywhere. I'm already a self-reflective, analytical person and the therapists and Dr.s haven't given me anymore insight that I didn't already know. I have all but given up on the whole psychological/psychiatric industry but I just keep searching for something that helps. So I am now medication free and thinking that either ECT or TCMS are my only options.. or are they?
It appears that therapy is not the answer for you and you have tried a variety of ADs. You may want to post another questions asking if any one has done ECT or TCMS. Or tell us what you have tried. Some of us are on off label meds that have worked.
I would think if these methods worked for more people, we would have less people on a forum like this. But that is my opinion only. I do not know how these modalities work or if they work.
You can only keep trying to find what may work for you. Don't give up. Wishing you the best :)
