Medicine is where to turn to first. If you already are on meds, you need to talk to your psychiatrist. Or maybe you need a new psychiatrist. If your regular doctor is giving you meds for depression -definitely see a psychiatrist, they are specialists!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also I would definitely recommend a counselor-I see mine every other week. That is a start, those two will start to lift you up, and help you to do other things to help yourself.

ah...I read these post and relate to all of you. I have battled the depression demon my whole life, I'm 44. I've been on most of the AD's. Some better than others, combo's for awhile. I do well, then crash like most of you.
When the "low" comes, I try to stay busy, I walk extra ( although it is hard getting out of bed at times) I contact friends and let them know I'm low.
Writing helps and being grateful for what I have is best medicine.

Your welcome

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."

I have a Serotonin Deficiency Syndrome started about 12 years ago...
I didn't know at the time and checked many tests but didn't know what was going on until finally it came with VB12 deficiency and depression...
6 months ago, the Doc. had me started 10mg of lexapro and I am a different person. lost weight and still going.... of course being light does help to go outside to buy new clothes.
