Our expert says:
All of us, including you, are very complex. Both psychologically and chemically. So our problems are complex, and even beneficial changes are complex. It may be disappointing, but actually changes that show in a up and down gradual improvement are more realistic and more likely to last. A sudden improvement is more likely to be a false one, and could end just as suddenly.
In a situation such as you have described, there are the various chemical imbalances that are related to the symptoms, and each is changed at a different rate by medication, and the effects of the changes in hormone levels work at another, different pace. And changes in one relevant chemical in turn affects the levels and actions of other relevant chemicals.
Hormone levels affect our mood, our ability to handle stress and pain, and so on.
And o course, while carefully selected meds can be very helpful, they often don't do the whole job, and psychological treatments, like CBT, are necessary to complete the desired effect
