please someone help! my dr tried 2 antidepressants and then gave up :(
 
I was prescribed Celexa about 7 years ago. I was on 20mgs. About a year ago, tragedy struck my family and I have gotten more depressed and feel hopeless a lot. My therapist recommended that I ask my dr to change my meds. He switched me to wellbutrin. That made me cough horrible so he switched to effexor. That did the same thing. He then told me that coughing only happens in less than 2% of people on these meds. I think he might not believe me but the coughing is real and real horrible. So, his solution was to put me back on Celexa because I can't handle other antidepressants. Is it just me or shouldn't he keep trying other ones until one works? I feel like he put me back on celexa cuz he doesn't want to deal with me. Technically, I could up the dose to 30 or 40 and see if it helps. But why wouldn't he suggest that? Why would he put me back on the same med I asked him to change? What should I do? Should I change doctors? If so, I'm not sure how to find one. Can someone please help me? I am so upset and frusterated.
