Depression and medication choices
I am 46 year old female. I have been dealing with a problem that has just consumed me (a family member is sick) and as strong as I tried to be, it finally beat me down. This past month I have been feeling blue to the point of tears, I lost interest in everything, work, school, gym, house, everything. I am always overwhelmed and sad and find myself eating to console myself. I am not overweight but my clothes are getting tight. I asked the doctor to put me on Wellbutrin to get me through this slump. Not teary anymore but no zest for life, everything is an effort, nothing holds my attention for long.
What other anti depressants are there that will pick up my mood without the side effect of eating. I need something to pick me up because this drought of happiness is killing me. Thanks.
