I am taking three antidepressants BUT

I still feel depressed....I am still not living like a normal person. I don't leave the house. Most days I stay in my nightgown all day long. I have no desire to go anywhere; I spend most of my time on the computer. What do I do now? I am taking Lexapro, Buspar, and Amitriptaline. All this is on top of two allergy medicines, Flonase and Singular, and a medicine for acid reflux, Protonics. What the hell? I take so much medicine I have to keep a daily journal.....Sometimes I just want to scream....but I don't have the damn energy. Anybody got some advice for me? I pray, I take my meds, I try to keep a positive outlook, but I still feel sad all the time...sighing and running my fingers through my hair...I don't care how I look and I don't want to eat anything but junk...I smoke too much and I don't sleep well....is there an end to this? Does anyone else feel like this? If so, what do you do to cope....? It seems like my husband doesn't understand; of course he SAYS he does, but his actions say something different....I think he's fed up with me and he's not the only one cause I am too.

Re: I am taking three antidepressants BUT

Hi! I'm sorry you are feeling so bad!
Do you feel any better on these antidepressants than you did off them?
If you do, maybe you could try upping the dose ~ ???
If you dont, maybe you could try a different AD ~ ??? ~ they dont all work for all people ~ have you tried any different ones?
What does your doctor say? Does he/she think you should try a different med instead?
