While there is no guaranteed anti-depressant to help reduce your symptoms, your treatment should be more than just based upon prescription drugs. Talk to your psychiatrist to see if you can start cognitive behavioral therapy. This therapy has been shown to help reduce symptoms. The medication should be used just to help minimize the symptoms while you undergo therapy, but you may have to try a few different medications to find one that will best suit your brain chemistry. Be open and communicative with your psychiatrist about concerns that you have regarding the medication you're on and anything that causes the symptoms to be worse should be noted and monitored throughout treatment.
