Don't know what medications you have tried, but don't despair. You may have to try a combination of meds to find the right cocktail that helps your individual symptoms. It took me many years to find a good combination, and with new ones hitting the market frequently, there is hope.
I tried alot also. Have you tried Maoi meds? Sometimes they work better for people who cannot take ssri. I take Manerix with lithium. I no longer suffer from major depression since 2008. I used to suffer from major depression off and on foe 20 years.
Hope this helps!
I hear you! But don't worry, you just haven't found the right combo yet. There are stronger anti depressants like Effexor. Talk to your doctor about that and also maybe gabapentin. It honestly was my miracle. It immediately helps depression and anxiety, before I started this medication I was putting myself in psych units and everything. I have been on it 7 years in addition to zoloft and of course I still have bad days but NOTHING like before. Basically there is something that will work for you. I am not a doctor Obviously but I recommend it because it really helped me. Good luck and don't give up until you find the right combo for you!
