Unhappy Need some support

Hello everyone, I'm struggling with my depression and it has gotten progressively worse over the last several months. My doc has tried several combinations of drugs, but now has me back on the original cocktail of meds. I take 40 mg of Lexapro (double the recommend doseage) and 300 mg of Lamictal (mood stablizer), and klonipin at bedtime and when needed for anxiety during the day. I'm so frustrated because I don't feel better. In addition to depression I have fibromyalgia which has been flared up over the last few weeks to the point where it's a struggle to get up in the morning to go to work because I'm in pain all the time. Have you ever been so confused about what to do you end up doing nothing at all? It's a beautiful day here in Virginia (close to 60 today) and all I can do is sit here feeling bad about myself and my life. I guess I need to call my doctor again, but since I've only been on the increased Lexapro for a little less than a week am afraid she'll tell me to give it more time. I'm afraid of how I'm feeling right now. Thanks for listening and if anyone has some encouraging words, I could really use them right now.

Re: Need some support

me also get into these kind on situation often when i just spend my day(days) at home and trying to fight out of depression. I try to repeatedly tell myself that the past is gone and tomorrow will always remain tomorrow, this day, today is all i got and have to make most out of it, and sometimes it works well for me and turns me into different mode.

I hope you be able to get out of your depression.

Good Luck
