Our expert says:
I wish so many doctors wouldn't be so obsessed with Cipralex, which is merely one among many antidepressants, and doesn't suit everyone. CBT therapy would be more likely to help, and with recurrent depression, something like some mood stabilizers. I hope, with a story like yours, you are seeing a proper psychiatrist rather than a GP. Definitely see a good psychiatrist locally and ask about CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ). Don't see a psychologist who is excessively interested purely in matters of child abuse, as they seem to be less successful than someone with broader interests and experience. And surely your GP can recommend a good local psychiatrist ? He cannot possibly be practising competently without knowing several that he finds good and reliable with the people he refers to them
