I have been on one antidepressant or another for the past 53 years! I have also taken antipsychotics as needed. I have found over the years that after awhile, usually a couple of years, the antidepressants stop working and I need to change to another one. This generally takes care of the problem, but there are times I've needed to add an antipsychotic to boost it's effects not necessarily due to psychotic symptoms. When I added Abilify to my antidepressant it seemed to work much better for me. Also, I would like to say that the family doctor or GP does not have the training that a psychiatrist has so does not know the interactions and effects of various psychiatric drugs, so you may need to see a psychiatrist for better treatment. Anymore they don't talk to you they just prescribe medications so you don't have to worry about being "shrunk". I hope this helps you. bbnrse
