Does Anyone Feel Their Medication Is Not Helping For Their Anxiety And/or Depression?

Does Anyone Feel Their Medication Is Not Helping For Their Anxiety And/or Depression?

I'm worried that I am treatment resistant. I am on a few medications for severe depression and severe anxiety but I still depressed/anxious. Has anyone else had this problem? I am on Welbutrin XL, Zoloft, Abilify, Elavil and Vistaril

Hi Kristin
I used to be quite heavily medicated. Now...for me personally....i found that the meds just sort of uhm...well..medicated me...kept me...so that i was almost dopey..for lack of a better word...and fat 😪🤧🤧🤣🤣🤣 but did not help my depression...anxiety somewhat..only due to so many meds..which i am no longer on. There is much debate on this subject. What works for one may not work for another. I just think we shud go with our gut feelings and be totally honest with the doc...just sayin'.
All my best 🤣🤣🤣💥💥💥

I am Medication resistant depression and have been for many years. I have gone through every single medication all the way back to the ones in the 1950s I even had Shock treatment nothing has worked for me. So I do take a mood stabilizer which I have been 1 for 11 years and I have not hurt myself ever since
