I’ve been on Prozac 20-40-60-40mg currently for 8 weeks. No major relief yet. My depression is so severe with dissociation this time.
I started looking for TMS therapy that is costly. But my insurance should cover it. But it’ll take time. I have little energy. Nothing is easy.

Going on tablets is frustrating as we all want to see an instant impact but unfortunately these drugs take a long time as you well know and sometimes don’t even necessarily work...
have you tried other coping mechanisms such as
Exercise
Reading
Meditation
Mindfulness
Have you had tms in the past ? And if so did it work ?

Hi
Thank you for reaching me out.
I’ve never tried TMS before
Insurance covers TMS in the US. So I have nothing to lose even if it won’t work...
Yes....med takes time to work (or not work). 3 antidepressants failed to work in my case.
I’ll go to a TMS clinic today for consultation.
How are you doing? Hope you’re doing ok.
