Drug resistant depression // Drug Repurposing

Drug resistant depression

There can be many reasons why a medicine works for some people and not others. Depression is a complex illness, and everyone is different. Your doctor or health care professional may want to talk about your symptoms again to see if there may be other reasons for why you feel depressed. You and your doctor can also explore other treatment options.

Many people do not get better the first or second time they treat their depression. Do not give up! You and your doctor can continue to look for the right treatment.

Is there anything that will work for me?

Doctors have many different ways to treat depression. Even if some medicines did not help you feel better, there are other treatment options. These options include combining medicines with non-medicine treatments, adding different medicines, or switching to one or more non-medicine therapies.

What are non-medicine treatments?

Although medicines are the most common way that doctors treat depression, there are other treatments (therapies) for depression that do not use medicines. Researchers have studied four of these treatments:

Electroconvulsive therapy, or ECT, is one of the oldest and most common non-medicine treatments for depression and other mental illnesses.

I'm exactly the same way. I became drug resistant a long time ago. I was kind of glad because I don't want the drugs. But, it's hard to live with.
My sunlight lamp helps. Not having to work, eliminating that stress, helps.
But, then having a major meltdown because of the company that's screwing with me, really puts it into the forefront. I just have a difficult time dealing with anything going wrong.

Yes! That always helps. I used to always say

I got spring fever REALLY bad. Just hated winter. Then, about 10 years ago I was diagnosed with SADD. It all made sense then. The spring fever (onset of happiness) was the lifting of the seasonal depression. I use a light therapy lamp, and it helps, but it's still there. (I'm drug resistant.)
I wish I could afford to move to Florida.
