Hi, I have been suffering with severe depression for 8 months (triggered by a health scare which is resolved). I was put on Sertraline but had such a bad reaction had to be taken off after a week. I then tried to cope without medication but couldn't.
I am currently on Mirtazapine (30 mg last 10 weeks) and Venłafaxine (5 weeks, last two at 225mg). I am not seeing any improvement at all, if anything, I'm getting worse. Yesterday, for the first time in a while, I felt actively suicidal. Mornings are absolutely terrible.
I'm now petrified that I have treatment resistent depression as I cannot continue to live like this. Please help, this time last year everything was fine but now I don't recognise myself or my life. I have had counselling and CBT.
I'd be so grateful for any advice x
