Re: My boyfriend's depression...
Rick, he is currently on celexa and nuerontin. He's been n the meds for about 3-4 weeks and while I have definitely noticed some improvement in his mood and his overall drive to even get out of bed in the morning, he says that he doesn't feel that the celexa is helping and wants to try something different. He is going through some really serious crap right now (serious financial woes and problems with the law) and feels like he can't get himself out of trouble this time.
I would love for him to see a therapist, but he can't afford it and probably wouldn't go if he could because he's stubborn. As far as seeing a physician, maybe I should encourage him to go back to the Doctor to try a different anti-depressant, but if he does, the suicide issue won't come up. He won't ever say that to anybody but me I have a feeling.
Has he been on the celexa long enough to give up and try another or should he give it another week or so?
