Hi Judith Romano 90,
Sorry for the delay in answering your query.
Have you been started on the nexito
straight on the 20mg dose? I am a bit surprised as that is the highest dose and usually we start low because of the potential for side effects. But apparently you are tolerating it well.
Judith, usually any anti depressant
takes 4-6 weeks time to act fully and looks like you still have about two weeks to go. Also we have about7-8 more choices of changing the medication or adding another medication to it etc. YOU CAN DEFINITELY BE HELPED DON'T LOOSE HEART.
IF YOU HAVE PERSISTENT THOUGHTS OF SUICIDE
OR HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT HOW TO DO IT ETC please go and talk to your physician immediately. There are some other medication which may start acting within two weeks (as your nexito is already at its highest dose) when added to your current medication and it does help with severe depression
if that what you describe is.
Also please ask for availability of talking therapies, in particular interpersonal or family therapy as your problems do look deep seated and just treating the symptoms now may not help fully in long term. Couple/marriage therapy might help as well but all the talking therapies must be from trained professionals please.
Hope this helps
