This is scary for me to think, but I am starting to believe that "poop out" does not exist either. Well, the drug may stop helping the depression, but I think it is because the depression is getting worse. Just like any other disease like diabetes or hypertension, as time pasts, some people need more medications to control them. The drugs still work to some degree, but the disease is outpacing them.

Part of the reason I say this, although I have NO SCIENTIFIC basis for this, is my side effect profile stays the exact same. Maybe if the side effect wore off too as the antidepressant effect stopped, I would believe that the drug is "pooping out". But for me, I still have all the side effect, saying to me that the drug is still doing the exact same thing. Just the depression is getting worse.

What do you guys think?
