I've been on SSRIs for over a year now. My depression improved significantly for quite a while, but lately I feel like things are getting worse again. One could speculate that I initially felt better because I was hopeful about finally getting help, and I also had someone special in my life soon after (and now I don't). I feel like the meds work somewhat, but maybe they're losing their potency?
And I'm not sitting around thinking about my life or future. It's mostly just... I feel it physically and now my thoughts are getting worse along with it. I'm going to see my psychiatrist again soon, but I had tried switching to Prozac a while back and had a bad experience with it, so switching meds scares me. I'm starting to feel rather hopeless again about my health and future. Not a good feeling at all.
