What are you lacking right now in terms of remission from depression?
How do you know that this is the result of a lack of effect of the medication rather than an increase in depressogenic psychosocial stress?

Are these effects specific to ameliorating depression only, or are they things that would enhance the quality of life for people in general, even in the absence of depression? In other words, are these things that pills can not do?
The measure of achievement lies not in how high the mountain,
but in how hard the climb.
The measure of success lies only in how high one feels he must
climb to get there.
