Don't loose heart. Let me tell u 1 thing for sure that u will get well. This is a common complaint that many a pts with depression report. All u need to do is to get in touch with a psychiatrist who ll assess u. Many a times an antidepressant stops working or may not work at all because of various reasons. The psychiatrist will take a detailed treatment history n then decide upon the kind of treatment u require; which is going to b a combination of both medicines n psychotherapy. Other than this try to keep yourself positive, avoid unnecessary stress, exercise or meditate a bit. It takes some time but soon u ll start feeling better n more confident.

Hello my friend...just remember "Broken heart and shattered dreams are key mentors for weaving a glorious destiny."...Consult nearest psychiatrist as you require detailed counseling session and you may require medications to solve your problems as many things can't be discussed in forum like this...With that fallow relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation,avoid alcohol, smoking, coffee, tea...have good sleep and develop healthy food habits..good luck
