Recovery. I'm on Zoloft 200mg. Also seroquel and Klonopin. I am better than I was last year but not recovered. Can it take a long time to fully recover? I'm also in therapy
Yes, recovery is an ongoing process. Kind of like having diabetes, you have to take your treatment regularly. I have been stable for many years with the use of therapy and medication. You may or may not need to stay in therapy and/or medication for life, but give yourself plenty of time to recover before making any such decision.
Like Laurie said it's more getting and keeping these things under control. and keeping them that way. Sometimes you have to or need therapy others it's medication Its whatever works best for you. We are all different. This would be a good question for your therapist and let her/him help explain it also. Not really a good answer that fits for all. And I just look at it like it's my blood pressure and just take the medication as directed and it is so work it. Have a great day and keep on plugging at it.
I had a major depression in 1985 and small ones in between until another major one in 2007. I always was on antidepressants but when I got well would ween off under doctors orders. But because I reoccur the psychiatrist told me I would only get it over and harder if I got off my meds. So I'm on manerix along with lithium as a combo. My levels have been cut in half over 8 years but I will be on it for the rest of my life. I love Manerix and lithium it gave me back my happy life plus I handle anything coming my way. I have since handled thyroid cancer and surgery treatment which I'm undetectable now fir cancer. I have had a divorced last year and just gotten married to a woman who has multiple Myoleoma which is incurable cancer. So I have had alot on my plate since my last major depression in 2097. Good news no recurrence at all of depression.
So it's just to find what meds work for you and therapy if you need it. And of course time is really helpful.
