    Nope was horrendous gave me awful migraines & horrible dreams. They may not have the same side effects for you though so worth a try if your doc thinks it will help. I'm done with AD's now sick of trying new ones!

    I completely understand, it's not nice having your body go through all the side effects & withdrawals time after time. The last appointment I had my doctor told me I'd 'exhausted all options' so I'm pretty much done. Shouldn't be so difficult to get some help.

      You sound like me, they have given up on us as the normal drug regimes do not work.   There is a thing called treatment resistant depression and i think thats what it must be.  I will have another go at talk therapy but having tried everything i am not sure it will help.   Did they ever offer you ECT?  Mine havent as i think you have to be completely debilitated to have that.  Do you think the private sector would be any better?

      Exactly it's like if the first few things they throw at you don't work then you're tossed aside & left to fend for yourself. Nope mine never offered ECT just meds & therapy but neither worked for me.

      I think most things are better when you go private you'd probably get alot more support & be given more options but metal health is so poorly treated worldwide I don't even know how much better going private would be
