Hi Racer-
I'm sorry you're feeling so hopeless. You're right to have questions about which AD to be taking and in what dose, but the immediate issue is your safety.
You need to find someone/ some place that will help you during this crisis so that you can tackle the issue of the right medication. There are many out there, and deciding which one is a combination of what side effects you're willing to deal with, and then finding one that works for you. Unfortunately this can be an involved process. But hopefully your doc can be a partner with you and help develop a plan.
Does your doctor know how hopeless you're feeling? Does anyone? For starters you need for someone to know. If you aren't then able to agree with that person that you will not take your life then you need to get yourself to the hospital. The depth of despair is agonizing, but there are ways of lessening that (through medication). Please give yourself a chance.>

Hi Racer.
> I'm sorry you're feeling so bad. I have had the same feeling many times. I have been on lots of medications that had bad side effects or were ineffective. Eventually you will find one to help. Taking an overdose is not the way out.
> If you really feel suicidal and have no where to turn, please go to the nearest Emergency Room.
> You say you have a horse. You must love him very much. Think about who would take care of him if you were not around. Surely, no one could give him the care and love you do.
> Please tell your doctor, or someone else how you feel.
> Take care,
> Donna
