Hello
Yes, it has been quite a while.
I have been wondering how you would have been.
The burning that you have - is there absolutely no difference ?
I mean not even 10 - 20 % ?
That is not possible, really.
I mean the antidepressants should be working.
How many days has it been now ?

Detailed Answer:
Sorry for the late reply.
Was having internet connectivity issues at my end.
So the antidepressants have been making a difference.
Give yourself one more month to see if there is further improvement.
If you do not feel relieved by then , then you can consider other alternative modalities of treatment.
Please go through this link again, it will give you further lines of treatment.

Discuss this with your doctor too.
Take care.
