ANTIDEPRESSANT MEDICATION

i was just wondering if any of you take any antidepressant medication what median works best?
i am bipolar/schizophrenic and i am doing everything to go get seen by a doctor but the medical help where i live is so bad. they put you in a waiting list for months then its one b/s after another...i try to not be on medication but i need something...if anyone knows about this you know it is so hard to deal with this illness... so anyways i join a site where i can get medication delivered to me... i have been on all different types of medicine and it seems that it works for a wile then it does not do anything...
any help is better so this has become my last resource...

  • My husband is Bipolar. It takes years to find the right medication. Just stick with a good Psychiatrist and they should be able to eventually find it. Unfortunately its trial and error.

  • Anti-depressants are a hard drug to persribe, they dont all act the same for every individual, and sometimes it takes a mix of a lot of different drugs to find your right balance. I know you are desperate to get help, but please wait for a dr to guide you through the tangled web of anti-pyscotic meds.
