@grandmaraines It takes time for both medications and therapy to work. Don't give up, please! I recently started back on a low dose depression/anxiety medication, and was told it would take 3 weeks to start building up in my system, and would be 5 to 6 months before noticing significant changes. Like you, I was figuring immediate changes. But realize, please, that it takes time to change brain chemistry, and after a good trial period, there may have to be an adjustment. Everyone is different.

Thank you for coming back to let me know what is happening now. Don't give up hope. Come back and let us share with you.

@grandmaraines As one who suffers from extreme depression and diagnosed as Bipolar, I can relate to some of your husband's symptoms. My brain shuts down in both directions, overwhelmed with information and it appears as no skills to comprehend. The additional kicker is the knowledge or memory that one used to be able to do it. A double whammy for me. Progress u s slow going, but he is trying in as much as he can until the right meds work. Blessings to you both.
You are there for him in such loving way.
