Our expert says:
OK, so these particular antidepressants, and this particular dose, alone, are not working well enough. See a good local shrink fopr re-assessment and a revision of you medication -- and also ask them to find you someone who can provideyou with CBT counselling, and you should be feeling better before too long. What you are describing is only a partial response to treatment which has not thus far been adequate. The pills alone are never enough, but they can improve your brain functioning to a degree that enables you to cope better and get out of the depession --- espcially if you get the proper therap / counselling as well. DO call Lifeline ( number on this page ) to talk this through with one of their counsellors, for a start, and tell your psychiatrist / prescribing doc exactly how you are feeling.
