Depression and medication

>>>Click here to read all the posts in this series<<<

As the saying goes, "It works until it doesn't."

The trouble with anti-depressants is that the body (or, at least, my body) gets used to them; what once made you feel like a normal, emotionally-balanced person eventually has no effect on you at all. So, your doctor will increase your dose, normalcy returns, and you wait until it stops working again.

The cycle repeats until you reach the maximum dosage of the medication, and then you have to start all over again with a different prescription. Each time you feel more hopeless, it gets harder to bring yourself to continue your doctor visits, and you begin to wonder: What is the point?
