Is depression permanent?

Thank you Amanda. I do have a psychiatrist and she was hoping that the parathyroid surgery would help in my recovery. I am only slightly better. I am eating a little better, my blood pressure is better and I am a little stronger. But now I am developing aching joints on top of everything. She thought that the combination of seraquel and cymbalta was causing it so she switched me from cymbalta to trintellix 3 weeks ago but the joints are still aching and growing worse. Blood tests do not show any auto-immune diseases. Before the surgery she tried Ambilify, Vreylar and Latuda so maybe it is worth trying them again. Somehow, I think because my body chemistry has changed from the surgery I should try reducing everything. That’s why I am reaching out to see if anyone with Bipolar has had this surgery and what their doctor did to adjust their medications afterward.

Thank you for the links. I will look into them.

I have major depression disorder reoccurring. I had surgery two months ago and was readmitted a week later with uncontrollable vomiting. They stopped all my medication because I couldn’t have anything by mouth. When I was released I decided to cut my Zoloft from 200mg to 150mg. I became nervous, agitated and depressed. I just didn’t want to talk to people or see them in person. I had forgotten that I reduced the medication. On my monthly visit to my psychiatrist after talking she said I have to look over your medication and change something you are not right. The more I talk with you I can see you are just not acting right. That’s when I remembered about the Zoloft and she told me to go home and immediately take the 50mg and up the dose back to 200mg. I do feel better. The point of this is yes this proves to me that I will have to remain on antidepressants the rest of my life.
