Common Questions and Answers about What to do when depression medication doesn't work


1551836 tn?1294151018 I think the depression is taking over my life. No matter what I eat and what I do nothing is happening. I don't even want to leave my room anymore and all I want to do is curl up and do nothing. I'm trying to push against it and I am trying to fight against the emotion, but nothing is working. I am on anti depressant medication but no luck. I am so grossed out when I look in the mirror and so sad when I get on the scale. It makes me not want to cook and eat healthy or work out.

193609 tn?1292180293 Hey! I am so confused on what to do. SO, I really want to go to law school. However, when Mike was going to join the army I decided to put off law school and go back to school to get my Masters in Criminal Justice. Well, our new apartment is 15 minutes away from Ohio State University, so I am very strongly considering applying for law school. I would retake the LSAT in June, and hopefully get my application in by October. I am 100% determined to be a lawyer, but I don't know what to do.
Avatar n tn I'm a 32 year old mother of 2 young boys. My problems with mental illness as well as abuse go back as far as I can remember. I have been in and out of therapy since I was 17. I have seen a number of psychatrists as well as medical physicans. I have taken Zoloft, Wellbutrin, Effexor and Prozac for depression changing from one to another as one worked and then seemed to lessen in its effectiveness.
Avatar f tn I was off of work for 4 days...I did nothing...when I look back, it was great. I do not want to be stuck in this dingy, old, dusty, dirty basement job. I have lost all of my schooling knowledge. I feel like a hopeless loser in this job. Doctor's are idiots, and my managers are even worse. I stress myself beyond no end when I have to go to this hell hole. The only thing that is keeping me there is the money. I'm to the point where I just don't care.
172023 tn?1334672284 My legs are too sore to do much with them. My quad is still very tight and has a big knot in it. So lower body work is out. I believe I could do the cross trainer or the elliptical without dropping over dead. I think I'll do that, do some upper body work, swim for a while, hang out in the spa (hopefully that creepy guy won't be there--he hangs out there about 10 hours a day, it seems), and call it a day.
Avatar f tn He is still depressed and it comes in waves. He fights me to go to school and I have to get back to work after the holidays. My son is also in couseling. What to do? I read alot of posts before writing mine. I read about Vyvanse, L-Theasine, Tenex, and so on. What to do?
2097734 tn?1333394338 I don't know what to feel. I guess there's a lot more going wrong right now than there is going right. I feel so depressed; maybe it's the week of no medication, or maybe it's just me. Sometimes I think that no one really loves me. Steven's bugging me for not contacting him; the truth is I just don't think it's going to work. I'm not ready for a relationship at the moment. I don't even know who I like. Everything's so confusing right now.
616659 tn?1221526415 If you know anyone with a problem please help them, someone has to, they cannot do it themselves. When and if you can get that person to see their problem they will try, but need constant support. I don't want to see any more people going through what I am. No one should ever have to go through this.
296076 tn?1371334474 So my husband and I have a rocky relationship. One minute he's all in and a few months later he isn't in to it at all and is thinking about leaving. That is where we are now.

He texts back no not just me Claudia and Derrick too. Two other people on his work team.

Avatar f tn What am I going to do? When I have children? Am I going to be able to love my children? I want to. I want to learn to accept love right now so that I can give it to my children when I have them. It's so simple, right? It doesn't need any explanation. It doesn't need a lot of hard work, and stress, and debate. It doesn't need argument or excuses or reasons. It just is. Love, just is. I wonder if Dave loved me. I know Benn did. But I had this dream, a long time ago.
Avatar m tn I have this major problem. I feel so bad and confused. I have to women that love me. I have D who is my wife and G who is my lover. The more time goes on i feel like I am just teasing D. I have given her until September 6 to get her life straightened around. I think that even if she does i am still going to leave her. That brings me to G. I have spoiled her and we have fallen in love with each other. Communicate a lot with each other during the day.
1129232 tn?1360800358 After a crazy roller coaster year of ART, I am still without a baby. (well i have my 3 yr old son and I'm very lucky for that) It has been very frustrating. When i started seeking the help of an RE this time last year, i thought for sure i would be pregnant in no time. How is this so easy for some and for others, we go on and on for months and years still trying with no success or luck.

Avatar m tn We all have doctor certified documentation that Morphine does not work for us. I found out the hard way when I went to the hospital for what I thought was a very painful ulcer. Turned out I had idiopathic pancreatitis. They gave me morphine in the emergency room and it did nothing. They gave me another does and again it did nothing. The dr. finally had them give me dilaudid and within seconds of it being pushed into my IV line, I got that warm feeling and no more pain. The dr.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am additcted to any type of opiates. I am prescribed loratab and oxy IR's for firbromylgia along with zanaflex. I go thru them like crazy just to get thru the day.

1100156 tn?1323923521 It's been awhile since I've been on. A ton as happened...I had yet another hypomanic episode, leading to a semester abroad for 4 months.
