    Yes definitely. I take an antidepressant as well as anxiety medication and both are very helpful. I still cycle around though and have bouts of depression where everything caves in even my physical well being. I am just starting to be able to identify this dip in my condition which used to go unnoticed by me. I have been diagnosed bipolar and am now starting to be able to identify the cyclic nature of this disorder. I take a tiny dose of Seroquel for this. Unfortunately I can't take any higher doses of anti-psych drugs because they cause my tendonitis to act up.

      Hi yes I suffer from this too. Throughout my life I have had spells where my depression worsens and have needed ad's and or therapy and they have helped quite a bit. I recommend you try this route too. x
