I agree that therapy can't always take care
everything (been there, done that myself--
often it means that I can UNDERSTAND my
indecision from every angle but still can't
do much about it!). The right med(s) can
make a world of difference--I assume you have
already tried SSRIs, as they would probably be
the first line choice. Dopaminergic meds like
selegiline or bupropion might be helpful too--
if you are going so far to consider bromocriptine,
you might inquire into some of the newer dopamine
agonists purported to have less side-effects
and better anti-depressant activity...
