Antidepressants making things worse
I'm really anxious this morning, so I hope to make sense to you guys. I have been depressed as far back as I can remember. Mid 30's now. Have been on anti d's for 10 yrs. They work a while and than stop. Depression never really goes completely away, I just feel better for a few months after starting new ad. There's a big difference now though. Starting in December, I found that Lexapro (had been taking for about 6 months) stopped working. I bumped up the dosage and depression and anxiety got worse. Went to doc, put me on cymbalta, did nothing for me. Doc put me on zoloft, on it for 21/2 weeks and I was incredibly irritated, depression got worst. Three days ago doc started me on effexor. I have never experienced the highs that I read here, only extreme lows and than like I said earlier, with a new ad I feel a little better for a short time. Long story I know, my point i think is this. Could the ad's be making things worst? Could my high's be irritation and anxiety? Thanks for listening.
