I am a 34 year old male. I have been suffering from depression and anxiety for a few years. I am seeing a therapist and on paxil, wellbutrin and will be starting lamactil. I have never experienced "feeling good" on the meds, I am just cruising along, so so. Due to a combo of stress and trying a different med, I hit bottom emotionally and am still trying to recover. My questions are: on meds, do you ever get to a point where you say "now I know what it feels like to be happy"? Or will life always be just so so? AND If you feel the meds aren't working how long do you stay on a med before you need your doctor to prescribe something different? I'd really appreciate any feedback. Thanks.
