  • I exercise. It always helps pull me out of a funk. You may need to go back to the doc and try a different med. They can take up to 6 week to really start to feel the true effects. Find a good friend to confide that also helps. Good luck.

  • I definitely agree with exercising. Even if I'm feeling extra down that day and don't feel like doing anything, I tell myself just to do 15 minutes and I end up going for like 90. It always makes me feel better once I start going.

  • I clean. The sense of accomplishment that I can actually see tends to boost me up a little.
    But I have OCD, so maybe that's why it works for me.
    A previous answer yielded good advice though, it can take the meds quite some time to really work. And not every pill will work for every person. Anti-depressants can require a lot of trial and error to find an effective treatment program.
