But any way any suggestions? Log in to Reply zebrasoul 1/4/2011 - 9:01 am Really, it depends on the person, the severity of the depression/anxiety, & their body chemistry. You usually don’t know how effective they’ll be until you try them, and you might have to experiment with the dosage or the type of medication to get the maximum benefit. I’ve seen them greatly help some people, so it’s worth a shot. Typically, the most improvement is when a person takes meds and goes through some counseling, as well.

In that time, I lost 3 more jobs, got arrested twice, and slept alone every night. What’s more, they did absolutely nothing to help my disposition for more than about a week. All I learned in that time was that the problem isn’t the chemicals in my brain — it’s that Reality won’t stop fighting with me, and pills aren’t going to fix that.

Log in to Reply markandjosh 1/4/2011 - 7:11 pm I take two types of meds. Cymbalta and seroquel. Plus I see someone every other week. I must say I feel no better now then when I was found to have depression. I feel I am on a prolong crash course for death.

I thought that my medication was doing nothing for the longest time, but now i can look back and see that it helped in the long run. I still take them, and well if i forget to take them that’s going to be a bad day for me Log in to Reply Leave a Comment Cancel ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.Subscribe to comments: Don't subscribe All Replies to my comments Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.
