> > Thank you both for responding. I don't know anything about Wellbutrin, but I'll look it up. The suggestion about starting at low doses is a good one too, but believe it or not, because of my history, they do start me on low doses. I can never seem to tolerate even low doses. I think I have to find out what I would feel like on NO drugs in my brain at all for a while. If I get majorly depressed, I would go back to the psychiatrist immediately for sure. How long does it take for the effects of an antidepressant to get out of your brain - anybody know?
Each drug has a different half life. Some stick around for quite a while. A wash out can take 6 weeks just to be sure. The problem with waiting till your symptoms come back is that studies show that people with depression don't see the problem coming back. If you have close significant others that can help you watch, then good. But don't do it alone.
