I'm guessing those treating you are a psychiatrist rather than a physicist ? And maybe a psychologist rather than a physiologist ?
Anyhow, after a number of unpleasant incidents such as you experienced, many of us would be Sad and not feeling well. Depression can follow such events, b ut usually not so promptly. So I hope that "Depression" was properly diagnosed according to current internationally accepted criteria.
IF it was indeed such a chemical depression, then Cipralex is one of many antidepressants which could help. But if it was such a true Depression, then it would be expected to last for some 9 months or more, and stopping medication earlier than that would probably see a return of the Depression. So IF there is indeed such a Depression, diagnosed according to the proper criteria, the usual advice would be to remain on the meds for at least 9 months, and to come off them gradually, after the advice of your psychiatrist.
There are other forms of reaction to ugly events that can cause irritability, so a re-assessment by either of your shrinks would seem wise before deciding on whether to return to Cipralex, or another antidepressant, or some other medication.
