Lexapro w/ Wellbutrin not working

Posted by ilovemaui on February 4, 2013, at 21:01:11

I have struggled with depression since I was at least 13. I am 39 now. I am taking 10 mg of Lexapro and 2 150mgs of Wellbutrin per day. I've been taking the Wellbutrin for about 4 years and the Lexapro for almost 2 years.

I can't remember any time that I was not depressed, even with medication. The Wellbutrin did keep me from feeling like I was walking around under a rain cloud all of the time but still not happy or energetic at any time. Over the past 5 months I've been in a downward spiral. Very hopeless, dreading the day, anxious, drinking more to feel some sense of peace, etc.

I also have trichotillomania which has been worse over the past month. I feel like if I don't do something I could have a nervous breakdown or something. Since I can't find a psychiatrist that can see me for at least a month I want to go to my general practitioner. But I need to have a good idea of what will work for me. I have been researching Celexa and Effexor. Has anyone with similar issues tried these? Does anybody have any suggestions for someone with possible dysthymia along with anxiety and a major depressive episode? Is there hope that I can be happy? Ever?
