I had a long story with depression and anxiety, my dad had a very bad depression for more than 10 years, he tried many medications without a good control but he had a lot of dependency to clonazepam and he killed himself with an overdose of clonazepam and I don't know what else. By that time I was feeling very depressed (like hell on earth) but I refused to take any antidepressant because of the bad experience I had with my dad. In the last 20 years I've been up and down, but no any single day I have wake up and think that the life is beatiful, some days are better than other days, but I knd of feel that the world as an hostile place where I'm surviving.
Even though now I have a good job and a family, but recently I'm going through a possibly divorce and I felt really bad so I went to the Psychiatrist and he prescribed Prozac for me. I started With 10mg and after 2 months I ended up with 40mg. With the prozac I was felling very bad at the beggining but after like 6 weeks I started to feel better like I never did in a long long time. But I still was felling that I needed a little push and more energy becasue I was so tired all the time. So my doctor add 150mg of Wellbutrin XL. The first three days were not so bad, then I started to feel a little anxious, but now that I have 9 days I feel very very depressed, I don't even feel the bennefits of Prozac. My doctor is out of town but he told me 2 days ago that hold for few days more.
I really don't know what to do, do you think this is normal? Should I feel more depressed in the early days even I'm taking prozac? or is this a signal that I have to quit it?
Just a comment, with the Prozac I really felt that was kicking it after like 6 weeks, but in the middle some moments were good even better thougths. But now with both, I don't have an good feelings and I feel very hopeless.
Thanks a lot
