Major Depressive Disorder NON-SSRI Anti-Depressants That Actually Work??

Major Depressive Disorder NON-SSRI Anti-Depressants That Actually Work??

I've tried many different meds over the years, mostly SSRI's, with little to no effect.
I've also tried Wellbutrin, which made me totally insane, and just tried Lithium, which I also reacted badly to (intense itching all over my body & extreme nausea).
I'm just looking for some other medications I can ask my doctor about.

not all meds work for all people- that is why they keep inventing new ones! Do not give up- I have been taking different ones over the years and some were awful and most were so-so. You may even have to try a combination of meds to get any relief. Keep working with your doctor.
