Hereditary depression has a cure?
Hello, i’ve been on SSRI’s for almost two years now and it doesn’t seem to have a long term effect, first i started with vortioxetine and at about 10 months it stopped working, so my dr changed me to desvanlefaxine, for certain reasons i had to use them for a longer period that was supposed to, but when he finally said that i should start lowering the dose and stop it in about three weeks the symptoms began again, basically they only seem to work while i’m on the medication. While talking with the dr the last session he said that it could be an hereditary factor or “part of one’s personality” (i dont quite remember the exact words) which makes me believe that it could not be cured? as in i might need to be on medication my whole life? he also mentioned about environment issues that may deminish it over time if they change, but im not so sure i understood correctly. My question goes about: is it possible to need medication all my life? i honestly don’t want to because i thought it was going to be a 1 year treatment tops
