lots of people do understand but i think those of us who are depressed feel like they don't most of the time.

Hi Lucy, Hang in there, i know its a cliche` but it does get better, Ive been on fluoxatine, seroxat, Haliperidol through the years, like you my depression started in my teens and because i thought it was just me being different to everyone else I didnt ask for help until it cost me my marriage.
I can only sympathise with you as i dont know about your journey and its not my place to pry, but Citolopram and CBT is working for me so far, i`m here coz im a fighter, depression aint gonna win. :p


Hi Lucy. I really think that you should go back to your GP and try another anti depressant as different types work for different people. I tried 3 different drugs before I found one that both worked and suited me. Luckily my GP didn't give up when the first drug failed to have the desired effect and thanks to his support neither did I.

I also wonder what pills and potions you are talking about taking for your sex drive and where you are getting them from?
I don't think anything can really help you with this but if your lack of sex drive is a symptom of your depression once you start to feel better like all symptoms this one should get better.

Keep posting Lucy and let us all know how you are doing.
