We have many here who understand your depression. Not sure what your question is, but prozac is a long-standing treatment for depression. Fortunately, there are many antidepressants on the market now. It is not a one-size-fits-all situation though. It is trial and error to find the best medication for you. Though it can be frustrating it is well worth the journey to get relief from the unrelenting depression.
I have tried several Anti depressants. Was hospitalized for 6 months while the doctor finally found some that work for me. They are Manerix and Lithium. Both meds are older but saved my life! This was in 2007 and I still do not suffer from depression anymore! I have my life back!
Hope you find what works for you!
Hi LovesMotherNature. I can empathise with your situation. My DR. put me on Prozac approx. 1 month ago and it has made my depression worse along with terrible insomnia. He then added 20mg of paxil with it. So far no positive results. As others have stated there are numerous combinations of meds for this condition they just have to find the correct one for you. I am going thru this myself so I understand your frustration, but as I am doing just hang in there most compentent DRs. find the right combination. Best of wishes to you in finding relief for your condition. Packard2046
