You bet, it happened to me after 3 decades of trying every antidepressant out there and getting worse. It wasn't until I started lithium things started becoming less than awful. I still need a small dose of an antidepressant, but I can handle it now without cycling all over the place.

I second the book "Why your depression isn't getting better" (Hi Katia!). It's a real eye-opener and you'll probably recognize yourself in there. The next step is finding the right mood stabilizer but at least you'll be on the right track. - Barbara
