Our expert says:
I always prefer to see any severe depression treated with counselling / psychotherapy, especially of the CBT variety, as well as meds, because there are aspects of depression which medication alone can't help.
And it doesn't sound as though you are yet receiving proper benefits from antidepressants. I do hope you have been seen and assessed by a proper consultant psychiatrist, and that your treatment is under such appropriate specialist guidance, rather than only seeing a GP.
