I have taken SSRI-drugs for more than 10 years. During this time I have also worked with several different therapists as well as courses in personal development and meditations. (I have also tried quit using the medication twice with no success)
Last fall I fell into one of my deepest depressions ever. I have been given a combination of SSRI-drug (Seroxat) and one named Mirtazapine.
I don't get any better (have had severe suicidal thoughts for several months) and I have started to believe that the drugs might block my recovery.
The therapist that I am currently working with (specializes in EFT - Emotional Freedom Tecnique) have put forward a hypothesis that my long use of anti-depressive might in fact block any progress and being contra-productive.
My question is therefore - do you know about other cases where anti-depressives is known to have had a negative effect if taken over such a long time that I have taken them?
