callaanna; Normally you should not need anything but it could be just not the medication for you and you should talk to the doctor about changing your medication. But if you just started it did they tell you that your symptoms can even get worse for the first and second week, while you start than the start to go away for many people in that time period and then continue to disappear more as you continue to take the medication and most people feel pretty good by week 4 or 5 but it really take 6 to 8 weeks to get the full blood level of this medication in your system where you really know if it's going to work so anyway if you have been on it a while you should call your doctor to see if you need a change or the doctor to add something to your medication. hope that we'll help you have a great evening.
I agree with Chuck. If it is not working for you, it may be time to try something else. Talk to your doctor about your on going symptoms and what option there may be.
Hope you find what you need to help.
You might ask your doctor about adding a medication like Abilify or Rexulti especially if you've tried other antidepressants in the past. About 2/3 of all patients taking an antidepressant have less than perfect results. These antipsychotics act on their own but also booster the effect of the antidepressant you're taking.
I took Abilify for over four years with fantastic results.
Best regards and hope you feel better quickly. Wildcat
