I suffer from severe depression and anxiety, but I have tried several SSRI's and they made my symptoms far worse even 3-4 weeks later. What have you done or tried aside from SSRI medications that have helped?

      Abilify and rameron together at night time helped me.

      ive struggled with severe depression and anxiety and ive also tried almost every ssri with no luck. going along with what Caesar said, i tried Wellbutrin a year or so ago and it was the only medication i've been prescribed that actually seemed to help!! for other reasons i stopped taking it, but i probably shouldnt have. I'm currently self medicating with adderall (as in not prescribed) and its had the best anti-depressant effects on me, more than actual antidepressants. i feel like i can actually function! i dont go home and lay on the floor for hours, i actually have energy after work because it lasts all day. it also practically cures my lack of motivation and my social anxiety as well. im a very shy and reserved person and usually when i try to talk to people, i completely blank out and cant talk. if i take the adderall i can have a normal human conversation🙌 the only thing is like i said i do not have a RX for it and you can easily build a tolerance, so i don't take it every day. sometimes i will still feel the effects of it the next day though! I have found that "uppers" work best for my depression, maybe that's something you could also look into!❤️

        @oceanSnow I haven't tried Adderall before, and I do also have ADHD so it's possible this might help! Thank you so much for the long answer 💕

      HOLY CRAP I TOOK ONE OF THOSE AND MY SUICIDAL THOUGHTS INCREASED SO BAD WITHIN 2 WEEKS OF TAKING IT!! my doctor switched me to a whole different medication, bupropion (specifically Wellbutrin for me!) and it helped so much! without medication i would have a suicidal thought on average every 17 hours but with Wellbutrin i don’t have any at all. with the SSRI medication i had suicidal thoughts every 2 hours on average. totally recommend switching!
