Do some of your symptoms persist, despite antidepressants?

You're not alone.

I definitely have this problem. When I've explained to my pychiatrist, she asked what I wanted to do. I wanted to say, "DUH, I don't know, you're the doctor." This is why patients are often afraid to discuss things with their doctors. I've tried various antidepressants, and have gained weight with several. That becomes a problem in itself. I felt great on Celexa, but gained over 20 pounds. I've actually lost weight on Wellbutrin SR, but I don't feel all that great.

Also, and I may start a discussion about this, I've had generics and I do not think they work as well as the brand.

Yes, my symptoms do persist despite being on wellbutrin.

Also, right now I'm on the generic form and am waiting for patient assistance to get the Wellbutrin XL.
