Hi Raj. Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
With regards to your problem, I would like to know had started you on all the medications mentioned by you. And since how long have you been experiencing these symptoms. Are you experiencing increased stress at work or at home? Unless you have been prescribed these medication by a qualified doctor, I would like you to stop them and visit a qualified consultant. I am of the opinion that you might be suffering from a mild depressive episode (Which is NOT necessarily depression) which could have started as a result of stress. So please consult a qualified specialist if the complaints persist.
Best wishes and regards.

These medicines are prescribe by a qualified psychiatrist only. even i believe that all my problems started with stress only. i was under tremendous pressure about my future during my 12th standard and college period. but not sure if that had initiated all the problems.

Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
Anhedonia is a Symptom of Depression. Don't worry, you will come out of it, if you stick to your treatment plan and make some lifestyle changes. Attend Psychotherapy sessions regularly. Do not miss any session. Learn about your condition, this will help you understand yourself better and stick to your treatment. Avoid situations which trigger depression symptoms, Exercise regularly and go out and mingle with family and friends. Don't avoid your family because you need it t lead a happy and healthy life. Avoid alcohol and get plenty of sleep. If you are childless, speak to your wife and plan for a kid. If your symptoms worsen with time, don't wait for anything, speak to your Psychiatrist immediately. Good Luck and Do take care.

Dear Raj, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
Your symptoms suggest that you are probably suffering from depression, & taking medication for 3 years without much effects. This may occur as medicines may not be effective in all patients or a particular medication may be effective in you, also medicines may take considerable time to show the effect-- 'an antidepressant takes 3-4 weeks for initial therapeutic effects & full benefits take still longer. The benefit/ or failure of a drug should be assessed at 12 week'.
Best thing with you is that you have insight of your illness. I advice you to continue the treatment-- you will definitely be cured. Good luck.

Greetings from health care magic
This depression and lack of passion and love to any body, lack of concentration, and above all this despaireness of getting cure all can be well managed with proper constitutional homeopathy treatment with bach flower remedies. If you believe in homeopathy then should proceed AQAP. Hope it will help. Thank you
