Reclaiming wrong prescriptions

Hi, my doctor diagnosed me with depression 3 years ago, and so I've been on many different kinds of antidepressants since then. I recently found out that I have a completely different condition, one that was really easy to diagnose and does not need medicating. I am really frustrated because it seems I have wasted 3 years worth of time and money, is there a way I can get this money back?

    Be aware that a misdiagnosis is not necessarily malpractice.

    I know someone with mental illness and its notoriously hard to get the right medication. He had to go through a number of different types and mixtures and levels to get to what he is currently on.

    That is the normal pattern and does not mean malpractice.
