Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Thank you for using Just Answer. I am sorry you are having such a difficult time. Lexapro is a very good anti depressant, but may not necessarily work for you. Some people need a combination of medications to assist with depression.
'The perfect treatment would include a visit to a psychiatrist for appropriate medications in addition to counseling to help deal with the underlying issues that may be contributing to the depression.
The over the counter information about anxiety and depression are good for informational reasons, but don't really help you process through the feelings and work to get to the other side, on your own. A counselor will prompt you and encourage you to process and talk about other feelings that may need to be surfaced.
I hope you will take a step in this direction. You deserve to have a happier life.
Please let me know if you have other questions. Gina
