Depression is rough and tumble things to deal with.
Docs really don't randomly toss meds at us, everyone is different and it takes time to find the correct med combo. If your doc as a non challant attitude I would look for a more interest psychiatrist.
Acid reflux is common on antidepressants. I take them with food at all times. I try to include yogurt or some kind of starchy food.
I have been diagnosed with LPR- Laryngopharyngeal Reflux Disease, not pleasant.
However, my ENT suggested a diet, important to stay away from are peanut butter, nuts, potato chips and chocolate of any kind.
The diet does reduce the symptoms a lot, so I do recommend you try it if you haven't yet.
Also, I don't know if anyone have ever talked to you about
coping skills. They are my survival buddies.
This is a link with great information to help you through the dark and hard times, because meds don't work all the time to keep emotions level. Emotional storms come and go, and they can be handled better with coping skills. www.mindful.org
Venting is aloud and even cleansing. However at some point we need to own our illness and help ourselves because no one else can.
We are here to help support, listen and give all we can to help you.
I wish you peace and strength
