I understand the frustration you're feeling. All the commercials say how "treatable" depression is and that within a few weeks, you'll be back to normal. LOL. It does happen that way sometimes, but, sometimes it takes months and even years to find the right medication. I hope you have shared your description of being extremely "up" and then "down" in the same day with your doctor, because it sounds more like rapid cycling bi-polar depression than uni-polar. I am not a doctor, it just sounds like someone I know. Regarding whether to stop a med, all the new research is suggesting that the duration of an adequate trial of a med should be much longer than originally thought. Hang in there.
