My husband has been treated for depression for the last 6-7 years. Although he remembers feeling suicidal from early 20's. He did try to commit suicide last year and we have not had a good marriage so far. I find him difficult, abusive and just hard work. He doesn't work ( crippled by this) , he doesn't help around the house, he was bankrupt, he doesn't sleep well at night, his dad had bipolar disorder and his family strongly feel he has similar. Although he doesn't experience the really intense highs. More of a hypo mania I think. So, 2 different antidepressants and no change. Now they will change him to a different one but he will hit start it for 6 weeks as he needs to reduce dose of current one by 50 mg every 2 weeks. This seems very slow. Does anyone else have experience of this. I'm dreading it. He isn't good on 200 mg I couldn't imagine him stepping down every 2 weeks with another one in his system.
