about 2 and a half months ago and find it is no good either.My depression just stays the same,kinda of a low grade depression.Can anybody shed some light on this before i see the doctor again.I not too sure what to say to him except how i feel. terry
All I can say is that it will be a trail and error on finding the right med for you. I hope you will do some research on the meds available to you for depression. You may or may not find this helpful but do try to look into it and see how others review their meds that they are currently on and make sure you also see what you should tell your doctor before going on a specific med. as well as side effects to expect. But also know that it does not mean that you will experience them just have to be reported to your doctor if it causes any discomfort or any serious effect. Give the med about a month to properly work for you. Sorry so long but I just want to give you as much info as I thought would help you out. By the way I am not a doctor/psych/pharm just someone who has to find the right meds for my illness as well. https://www.drugs.com/condition/depression.html
Sometimes it is hard to find the right medication for the depression, but, some light exercise such as walking 15 minutes a day and some talk therapy may help get you out of the rut you are in. Walking can also stimulate the brain chemicals and help lift your mood and talking with a counselor may help narrow down what is triggering the depression. Feel better soon.
I started Wellbutrin sr about 10 days ago. I haven't noticed any help yet either, although I haven't been taking it long enough yet. I have also tried quite a few other anti-depressants but didn't give them the full time to work because the side effects became too much. I plan on sticking out the wellbutrin for at least 1 month no matter what. I realize you have been taking these meds for quite awhile so I don't think that is the problem with you. I would explain to your dr that they aren't working. I don't complain to my dr as much as I should but remember the squeky wheel gets the grease! All I want is to get better and I'm sure you do to, and in order to do so the dr needs to know as much info as you can give him. I have been trying different meds for a long time but you just have to keep trying, even though some days you don't want to. Good luck.
