Depression is back for no reason

Posted , 5 users are following.

Have battled depression for years. Why does it come back ? It just crept back for no reason . Hate this feeling. Been on same medication for years. Do you think I've became accustomed to it. Feeling hopeless

    It's awful when it returns, especially when you thought you were rid of it.

    I definitely think you need a change of medication, I changed from Citalopram to Venlafaxine to Fluoxetine over the years because they would just suddenly stop working.

    Maybe have a chat with you doctor

    All the best

    hi, i hope you are ok. many of us  are in the same boat as you. Has anything happened or changed for it to come back again. Same as the others had said, maybe get some diff meds but you should go to the docs..Depression works in mysterious ways, can be fine for ages and them boom you are right back where you started. Stay strong and positive..thinking of you smile

    Same thing happened to me! Was on Lexapro for 10 yrs, feeling great and bam one day Everything returned! My GP increased the dosage to 20 mil and that was 6 weeks ago and I am still feeling low, but a slight improvement! Guess the increase needs more time to stabilize, at least that is what I am praying for!
