I do understand your concern and apprehension. It definitely seems that your symptoms of depression have worsened even after taking medication . I do understand your reluctance for seeing a doctor but it is important in your case to consult a a psychiatrist for adjustment of medication and psycho-therapy. I would advise that you continue taking your medication and if at anytime you have thoughts about hurting yourself, go to the ER immediately.
