Does your mood always cycle? Are your meds only anti-depressants? If so, have you considered seeing a physician and querying Bi-Polar disorder? It would explain a lot if your moods cycle as they appear to do.
how to stop the pain
There are many mood stabilizers to choose from so please do see your physician.
Drugs commonly classed as mood stabilizers include:
Lithium carbonate, Depakote, Lamictal, Tegretol, Neurontin and Topamax.
I am sure there are others and to answer your question, will you need meds forever? I hope not but I do not have the answer to that one. Some people do. Others may eventually wean off the meds and do very well.
Each person is different.

I hope to that I do not have to take meds for life but I guess I have taken them for so many years I fear what might happen if I did not stay on the meds.
My Pdoc swears without the antidepressant I will crash............then I would have to start all over and I am to old to think of starting over after 26 years of having depression.
Brings to my eyes thinking of it............so I best just say take care my friend.
