> The problem is they don't always work as good. One day to the next. Its as if the pills are all a different strength? Could this be poor quality control.

I doubt it. I would think that, at worst, there might be differences between whole batches of the drug. So, it would be extremely unlikely that you would be getting different strength pills in the same bottle.

> Or just ups and downs in my mood or what not.

Even with a biological mental illness that is responsive to biological treatments, the psychosocial stresses of life can cause changeable moods and "medication breakthrough", whereby the illness reappears despite adherence to treatment. Sometimes, a temporary increase in the dosage of medication helps to recapture the antidepressant response.

I would definitely have your doctor review your treatment to evaluate the need for making dosage adjustments. Of course, the only information that he will have to work with will come from you. You must describe as best as you can what you are experiencing. Write out your description ahead of time and bring it with you. Also, make a list of questions that you would like to ask him.

Yes, it does.
