I don't know you but I do care about what happens to you because I understand depression all too well.
I would take a good look at a few things in your life; what do you eat? Is it healthy food or junk that is loaded with sugar and chemicals? I ask because that does make a difference in how our brain reacts. When you eat too much sugar, it acts as a depressant, same with alcohol, it is a depressant. So, do away with all sugar and alcohol.
Next, make sure you limit fatty foods, eat good lean meats (chicken and fish), have veggies and fruits and lots of water. Exercise is very important for depression because it will trip the endorphins in your brain (the happy feeling). Get enough sunlight too, that and calicum will beef up your mood.
I live in a place that gets very little sunlight during the winter and I have to take vit. D and calcium plus sit under a "happy light" that mimics sunlight to help.
You must push yourself daily to accomplish one thing; clean the house, read a good book, watch a comedy, etc. Make sure you listen to happy music, watch only uplifting TV and above all reach out to friends and family for support. Get out and walk, daily, to get fresh air, sun and socialize.
Last, but not least, do you have a spiritual life? This has been found to help many people, healthy or not, to lead a more fulfulling life. I suggest you check out a good church or read some good books on a relationship with God. You do have a purpose in life, that is why you are here, you just need to take some time to find out what that purpose is and go for it. Take care, hang in there, it will get better. Before you go on another medication, ask the doctor to really check you out physically and talk about doing this without meds, which many times exacerbate the problem.
