  • It could be postpartum depression. But, if antidepressants are not working, it's not depression. I was on them, several of them, for years. They didn't work. I saw a different psychiatrist, in a different state. He just looked at me and told me they didn't work because I wasn't depressed, I am bipolar. He put me on a med for that, and I feel much, much better. If you are not seeing a psychiatrist, you should. And a good therapist.

  • Sounds like postpartum, there are sooooooooo many different meds out there now. Maybe ask to be bumped up on the mgs. I was moved up to 60mgs and it worked! I was horrified to get on anything and my doc let me know what I was bumped up to was nothing compared to what some are on, the same meds I was on some where taking 300-500mgs. So it is all in just what your body needs I would think. I would have a "good" converstation with my doc ask him about bumping up the mgs., if it doesn't work maybe a second opinion wouldn't be a bad thing, but I think if you were bipolar you would have experienced this way before having a baby. I had postpartum for a year, I know my doc said it can last in women up to 2-3yrs. and some never get over a little bit of that depression, and it can be harsh. I know someone I went to school with, his first wife shot herself because she had it is nothing to play with. Talk to your doctor....
