Any thoughts for husbands depression?
Anon_168275 posted:
My husband has been diagnosed and treated for major depression for almost the past 2 years. He has gotten progressively worse despite many medication changes. He attended a day program for 6 weeks that his Psych. recommended. Despite all attempts, he has not gotten any better. I made an appt for a 2nd opinion this Monday, despite having to pay out of pocket. I brought up with his current MD that I feel that all of his behaviors/moods seem to point to something other than just depression . I'm not an expert in this field, but I'm not entirely in the dark. I'm a trauma nurse and have had my own experience with depression. I really don't know what else to do. Everything is crumbling underneath us. He also hasn't worked in 5+years. And he has 2 graduate degrees. Any thoughts/ suggestions would be appreciated.
