Wellbutrin ER150 Mg With Lamictal 25 Mg To Start
A MyDepressionTeam Member asked a question 💭

have been on Wellbutrin before for depression, Doc is adding Lamictal 25 mg to start to help with racing thoughts (no apparently Bipolar) just depression, anxiety that will not leave.

IMO, that's a smart approach by the doc. Lamictal helps me with anxiety, by keeping my moods level. 🤞 hope it work for you too.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
A MyDepressionTeam Member asked a question 💭

Started TMS this week, 3 treatments so far. Those of you that found TMS helpful in treating your Depression, about how long did it take to start feeling a difference? I know everyone is different, but it would be nice to hear any feelings or time frames on how long it took to start feeling better. Thank you!

A MyDepressionTeam Member

Shelly, I'm on Spravato (and a host of other meds). Part of my treatment resistant major depression is PTSD. I wonder if TMS would work for me, I'd LOVE to forget about a lot of things.

Why Can't I Find A Doctor To Help With My Medication?
A MyDepressionTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been struggling with depression for over 30 years. No medication works for me except Fluoxetine which has lost its effectiveness. I am at the highest dose and it is doing nothing
Every doctor I go to pushes me off to another doctor and no one will help me. They say when you're depressed to ask for help, we'll I've been SCREAMING for help and no one will help. I've been on a waiting list for a psychiatrist since February and I don't know how much longer I can wait. I can't even get… read more

Is Lithium Really The Last Resort For Me? - "Treatment Resistant" Depression
A MyDepressionTeam Member asked a question 💭

I apologise in advance for this long question. I've been on Imipramine (a Tricyclic antidepressant) since June, and as it wasn't working my then psychiatrist prescribed Lithium to take with it. I've been on it for about two months and they recently increased my dose to 800mg Lithium, as apparently my blood levels were not high enough. It has only slightly improved my mood and since going up to 800mg I have had really bad indigestion and pain in my upper chest and it hurts to swallow anything… read more

A MyDepressionTeam Member

I would find a 2nd opinion. It seems to me that if you are having so many side effects with lithium, that it may not be a good choice for you!
Good luck!
Sending prayers!

More Than One Anti Depressant
A MyDepressionTeam Member asked a question 💭

After many years on different medications, I feel like nothing works for me anymore. Doctor has decided to try a combination of 2 anti depressants together. Just wondering if anyone else takes more than 1 and if so, is it worth sticking it out?

A MyDepressionTeam Member

My psychiatrist put me on Risperdal; she said it helps you sleep. It is also supposed to help with manic symptoms

Does Depression Ever Really End?
A MyDepressionTeam Member asked a question 💭

I was diagnosed about 15 years ago and each episode gets worse. I'm in therapy, taking meds; in short I'm working very hard, but still struggling. Recently I heard that someone in their mid seventies took their own life. I'm 59 and terrified that I'll be struggling forever. Depression is such a dark place to live.
