Did you feel like getting off the lexapro, because it wasn't working and it increased your appetite? It does increase appetite. You have to drink more water to help curb that s/e.

If you have pure depression and no anxiety, wellbutrin is the bet for you with the right dosage. Wellbutrin made me really anxious. It is an energizer for sure. You may just need the doc to adjust your dosage than switch you to something else, but that is provided that you have waited those 3-4 weeks for those meds to really take effect. Those ssri's help more for those who have anxiety with depression. Sounds like remeron is the only one you haven't tried, but it appears to be more for those that have the anxiety with depression. Remeron will increase the appetite as well.

Since your med was just recently increased, you haven't felt the benefit from it yet. It does as I mentioned before take a few weeks to help you feel better. It's that hard waiting game. Some people need a benzo to help with that jumpiness while their body is adjusting.

I am sorry that you are feeling so depressed. I hope the meds will kick in for you soon. I know that I get the most depressed in the middle of the night as well, because my mind seems to be playing out all my worries at that hour. Don't feel bad about calling someone. Weekends and late hours are when people feel their depression the most. How about making a do-to list to help you when you feel at your worst? It maybe to journal, get up and drink something like a calming hot herbal tea, read a boring nonscary/nonviolent book, and when all else fails give a call to a counselor. Don't give up yet on the meds.
