Sorry you're having such a rough time with the medications. Sounds like you have a very sensitive system - I'm a bit that way, though I have been able to tolerate lower doses of Prozac and Wellbutrin. Paxil I didn't like at all, and the older antidepressants were like poison to me.
Have you tried any of the natural supplements? I've had some good results with St. John's Wort and 5-HTP (5-Hydroxy-Tryptophan). Not as dramatic an effect as the medications - but no side effects either!
