Hello Everyone,
I need your support or if you have any similar experience I would love to hear.

I have been suffering from Depression and Anxiety for the past 15 years, I have tried all antidepressants medication on the market and non of them worked except for Lexapro, it worked fine on the first 4 years maybe and it stopped working it’s like I’m facing a tolerance with it, Dr have made me tried all Medication from Prozac, Cymbalta, Zoloft, Effexor, Seroxat, ablify and more and more. I might have an antidepressants resistant he also made me to try TMS it’s a sort of some electrical wave that hit your brain and it didn’t work as well. For the last 8 months I asked the dr to quit the medication as it not working and try things out, I managed the withdrawal symptoms and I was feeling ok not bad as severe but ok, for the past 3 week all bad symptoms returned back but severely and it’s hard to manage at all. I’m working with a psychologist and she informed me that I have as well obsessive compulsive personality disorder but I have never was diagnosed by this illness. I’m stuck and I can’t work. I go to work but I can’t communicate with anyone and I do feel that I’m very weird and I don’t have the energy to do anything plus no interest on anything. I need your support if you have been on this, and how did you manage it. I’m really frustrated and hopeless.

Hello Gadillio. Welcome to the forum. It is so hard when antidepressants cannot help our depression. You say you feel worse after not being on an antidepressant so I am wondering if they were actually helping a little bit. I take Vortexoatine but I am still depressed. It just takes the edge of it at times. Have you ever had any therapy? That may be helpful to find out if there are any reasons you have depression and anxiety.

Hello bpd2020, I really appreciate your reply. I’m on a CBT therapy, it’s not working good I feel I need something to push the therapy or something to give me energy . Antidepressants was working on the beginning and stopped being affective.

I do not think CBT is in depth enough to treat depression. It is more about challenging thoughts. Is it possible for you to try a different kind of therapy?

Well, I cannot be sure as I do not know your circumstances. Maybe looking up various therapies will help you to decide which you would like to try?
