Same symptoms: Usually, when pt experiences what appears to be a "plateau" in response to antidepressants, it could be that the medication needs adjustment. This is presuming there have been no other changes that have occurred, such as changes in other medications, new medical conditions, or increased psychosocial stressors. Inadequate medication adherence can also present similarly. Discuss with doctor. Best.
