I’ve been increasing my SSRI but the depression came back again today.

What the hell is wrong with me? When I first started taking Trintellix 10mg after 8 days I became so happy. This lasted about two weeks. Then the same thing with 12.5. Now when the same thing with 15 is happening I’m about to lose it and beat my brain with my fist physically into becoming stimulated again!
If 15/20mg is not helping then I’m a lost cause and my life will never get better!

I’ve said some intense things, my bad. I was able to calm down, sorry. There’s still hope what I’m trying to say is I sometimes feel frustrated.

The meds help, you know they do and have felt the results. Unfortunately they are not prefect and we all still have bad spells. If it gets really bad or goes on too long talk to your doctor. SSRIs also don’t kick in right away when you start or change dosages so give them time.

Have you taken any other antidepressants or is Trintellix the first you have tried? I had the same thing happen with Abilify. After about two weeks it kicked in and I felt happy for the first time in years and then a couple weeks later, bam, dropped into a deep depression, worse than I had ever experienced.
