Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Firstly, let me appreciate you for having a positive attitude despite your problems and also your good intention to help other people. You seem to be on a combination of a mood stabilizer
) and antidepressants (veniz and xet cr). Now, though Now, though many people respond well to anti-depressant medication, there will be a proportion of people who respond only partially or have a poor response to treatment.
In such cases, the management approach first involves investigating for any causes for poor treatment response, for example, certain medical causes, like thyroid
problems, certain vitamin deficiencies, etc. can be contributory. If so, they have to be detected and treated appropriately.
Further treatment options include trying different combination of anti-depressants, augmenting the antidepressant with other psychiatric medication like an anti-psychotic or a mood-stabilizer, thyroxine
supplementation, etc. Combining intensive psychological therapies (such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - CBT) with medication often gives good results.
So, don't get dejected or give up hope. Please discuss with your psychiatrist
about further evaluation and treatment strategies, so that he is able to find a treatment plan that is suitable for you.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
