I keep changing my medicine around for my depressive disorder, but I'm not sure what I should be looking when I try a new medicine. How will I know that the medicine is working? Any advice?

      One thing I learned about anti-depressants is that you have to be patient, their influence is slow and subtle, so you have to keep taking them for a while and keep your hopes up... Good luck!

      I think you should try and feel if the symptoms that bothered you the most, are not so disturbing anymore. For me it was getting out of bed easier..

      Like my psychiatrist told me: we are looking for two factors while taking meds: maximum treatment for our symptoms and minimum side effects. It took me 3 weeks before I saw any results and 3 more weeks with dose adjustment for the side effects to fade.
