Hi M. Sounds very discouraging. I'm hoping you've given each med you've tried long enough, but I imagine your doc has made sure of that before suggesting to try another. I haven't much experience, because Celexa is the first one I've tried & it's working well for me. My main problem is anxiety. My thoughts are with you & I noticed a reply to you a little further down the page.

Let us know how it's going. Kath

> Looking for a little advice. I have tried celexa 60mg (helped a little with guilt but not depression), prozac 40mg (nothing), and now am on Wellbutrin 100mg. The doc said that I would feel something within 3 days (day 4 he right?) and though it has helped a little with energy (usually I want to sleep all the time) not helping depression. He mentioned adding something else (I think effexor) next week. My main problem is an overall feeling of hopelessness, like nothing I can or could do matters. I have accomplished some major things (I have 2 masters degrees and am close to a Ph.d, I have a wonderful gf, etc) and yet I am miserable. I am very good at "sucking up the pain" and moving on (father's abuse was good for something, I guess) But, whatever I am doing I feel like I should be doing something else. I avoid people when possible and am very uncomfortable when my routine changes. Suicide is becoming less and less a theoretical solution. Q:
> Does anyone else feel this way? Sometimes I feel my therapist and psychopharm think things aren't so bad for me because of my accomplishments.
> Do you think the effexor will help with this type of depression? (I have had no side effects at all with any med so far)
> Should I try a different ssri?
> Any help is greatly appreciated. The posts here have given me some hope because I know it takes time, yet with each med failure I lose a little more hope. Thanks in advance.
