Hi. Your history is incomplete. Firstly , sulpitac is not for depression. Secondly, you need to see a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation of your condition to start appropriate treatment.

Sulpitac is not an antidepressant.  It may worsen depression at this dose. Please revisit your psychiatrist for adding an antidepressant.  Your bio says you have anxiety and stress. Antidepressants will work there too. All the best.

Definitely crying would help. Also it is temporary.  I feel if u cld meet a counsellor and try sharing your emotions you might get a better clarity how not to get back  to those bad past experiences.  Take care.

Hi

Sulpitac is usually not used for depression. However if you are experiencing periods of sadness & crying, it could mean that you may need antidepressant too or other forms of treatment like CBT. It is important to assess & see if you are experiencing other symptoms of depression & also assess the impact on your functioning. I am not sure the reason you are on Sulpitac. Hence, I wouldn't advice you to stop it or switch to antidepressant without consulting. Regards
