i have had luck with ssris in the past to help my depression and anxiety. for a while now i have not had any luck at all relieving it. i have tried quite a few different antidepressants with no luck. theres no drive and nothing to look forward to and all i feel is guilt and anxiety and just everything opposite of happyness. my mother is getting older and i should be helping her out. i have had my own issues going on which is preventing me from helping. did anyone else take an ssri and was helped out by them but than they lost its effect? did you have to try something lamictal or different type of antidepressant. what was your treatment option that kicked in i need someone to relate to all stories are appreciated to over come this what is your experience?

Zoloft helped me several times in the past, except last time around it seemed to do nothing. Maybe I didn't need it then? I guess it's possible for those drugs to lose their effectiveness. Have you seen a doctor?

Hi there I suffer with a anxiety disorder and pychosis due to a traumatic event in my life . At first I was put on sertraline by my doctor . I then went down hill mentally ended up in a and e and I was there referred to a home based treatment team who were great I was put on 200 mg of sertraline and 350 of quatiapine which has now gone up my quatiapine has now I’m under a mental health community team which I feel don’t do much .
I feel that going to a and e saved my life that night as the home based treatment gram were really good .

I’m not sure where bouts you are im
In the uk . There are mental health nurses in a and e where I’m based so I went into a and e and I was assessed by the nurses who referred me to home based treatment . If you go to a and e they can help .
