    I am on antidepressants (Sertraline + Mirtazapine). I thought i was getting better, but today i realized i am not. We celebrated easter today. Everybody but me was having fun. I cannot enjoy myself. I thought i was better, but today i realized i am still highly abnormal.

    I am sorry you are sad---just hang in there and get ahold of your Dr. Your meds might need adjusted. Go do something happy for yourself, like a nice warm bubble bath, or rent a comedy movie. Just remeber tomorrow is a brand new day!

    Take care of you!

    I would discuss that with your Dr. That possibly could be. Have you been on these meds for a long time? I know that mine stopped working after I was on them for a good length of time, so I had to switch, or they possibly could not be the right ones. Hard to tell, you really should consult with your dr, because I am not an expert.

    I've been on prozac for about 8 months but it stopped working afer about 5 months. I hear that SSRI's often do that.
