Tanya, thanks for your reply, I hear your frustration-I'm sorry. I feel the way you do a lot. Lately I have just wanted to sleep it all away. Do you remember what dosage of Topamax you were on when you did feel that "lift"? I have been on a lot of antidepressants and this time around my doctor had me on none for about 2 months. I hope you feel better and if you need support, or any questions about anything, I'm here for you.
Take care and thanks again
Gal

> I am still in the throws of a formal diagnosis. One thing for sure is that I have major depression symptoms that come often and are quite disabling at times. I am also on the dissociative spectrum during major stress and it is unpredictable when it will happen. No meds seem to be working for the depression. I felt a lift with topomax in the beginning but then fell right back into depression again. I take Prozac 40 mg as well and it does absolutely nothing for me. My doctor started the topomax because he was beginning to suspect bipolar rather than just depression which I've been treated for the last 2 years for. He is also suspecting ADHD. Nothing helps my depression. I almost feel like I've been through so much trauma that my brain just doesn't want to respond anymore. It just wants to give up and go to sleep forever. It is really quite sad. I have moments of excitement, but really only when I am at work. I am getting very tired very quickly. I understand your worry about meds.
