Your doctor: is the best person to answer this question. The answer requires detailed knowledge of your situation, no two are alike, and your struggles with depression. The medications you are taking may, over time, work on your depression as well as your other symptoms. Ask at your next visit or schedule one. If at any time you feel you may harm yourself, have any thoughts of suicide, go right to ER
