Keep asking: Keep taking your meds as prescribed by your doctor. What else are you doing to manage your depression? Meds alone are usually not enough. Ask your doctor about psychotherapy if you haven't already. Find ways to support yourself emotionally and physically. Best wishes and good luck!

Sounds like you may want to give long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy a chance...
