I am 50-year old woman with bipolar and personality disorders.  All antidepressants have stopped working.  I am on Prozac again right now.  The VA hospital won't let our mental health doctors perscribe Cymbalta.  Only our neurologists can perscribe it.  What do I do when Prozac stops working?  I've been in a depression for at least 6 months, and I'm scared.  I take the following meds for depression:  Prozac, Gababyntin, Trazadone.  I take a total of about 21 pills a day, including three I've mentioned above.  Can you give my doctor some suggestions?

50 pills a day doesnt sound very healthy to me.

What else do u consume other than these pills? Food-wise?
Paste your diet for a day or more to the forum.
