Began treatment for depression in June of 2011, after suffering for many years. Currently taking Lexapro 15 mg and buproprion 300 XL per day. Have tried many other drugs, but this is the best so far. I have been on this combo since Feb. 2012.
Always depressed but it became much worse in June 2003. I didn't realize what it was. I was never tearful or sad. I was just ANGRY and hateful and paranoid. It continued to worsen and I struggled without treatment until May 2011 when a friend who was diagnosed and treating for MDD finally confronted me and told me to get some help already. I struggled with the idea of treatment for about a month before I finally called my doctor.
