How do you define complete remission?

Posted by deniseuk190466 on January 31, 2024, at 4:59:34


I'm just wondering how people define complete remission.

When I was 24 (back in the early 90s) I thought I was physically ill, didn't think I was depressed. Didn't even know there was such a thing as antidepressants. My GP put me on Dothiepin (Tricyclic) and it worked overnight (not placebo). The first red tablet I took sent me into the deepest sleep I had had for years. I woke up feeling refreshed, my bedroom seemed visibly brighter, infact everything seemed brigher and had more depth. It was profound.

However, when I was 35 and had been off any medication for about 3 years and had been ok, all the symptoms came back, only much worse. The first time ever I had strong suicidal thoughts.

After 2 years of trying so many medications, I finally felt a sense of peace on 40mg of Seroxat. I've been pretty much on this for 15 years, with an occasional change and have tried adding all sorts of adjunctive agents but I always feel tense, I get tired very easily and I have muscle spasms.

Should I accept that this is as good as it is ever going to get and just be grateful that the medication gets me back in the land of the living again and I am able to enjoy things.
