For years now i've trying to figure out why antidepressants only work for me some of the time. Usually whn i start out on a low dose it works really well for a few months then it starts to not be as effective so i go up a dosage and then my body just can't seem to tolerate it and i get lots of physical symptoms.. etc. I know there is a period of adjustment but i've tested it and it lasts for months upon months unless i come back down to a lower dosage. But the lower dosage isn't enough. It's like my body can't tolerate it but it still seems to help with the depression and anxiety but the physical symptoms make me feel like crap. I was reading up on "seretonin syndrome" and it seems sorta like that's what's happening. I'm wondering if i could have a different underlying mental illness that's undiagnosed such as bipolar or something that isn't meant to be treated with antidepressants.
