> > I can't win against this monster dysthymia/depression. My worst symptom is inability to feel joy anymore. Lots of psychotherapy. Zoloft, Paxil, Prozac, just small does they kill my sex life, but don't cause a ringing in my ear. Serzone, Buspar, Wellbutrin, Remeron...good for sex, but cause loud ringing in my ear. None could be tried long enough to help. TCA Pamelor REAL sedating, bad sex, some ringing, TCA Protriptyline loud ringing. So what am I supposed to do now? Lithium? Pindolol? Naltrexone? Moclobemide from Canada? Any ideas GREATLY appreciated. Thank you. John.

Thankyou Patty, Jeff, and SaintJames for your replies so far. Comforting to hear from others. My psychiatrist has suggested Effexor, but it seems almost sure to create sex problems just like SSRIs. Yeah? Seems to me anything working on JUST serotonin doesn't create tinnitus, but does ruin my sex life. My poor patient wife. Anything working on NE causes the tinitus. Maybe Trazodone by night, Ritalin by day. Maybe a stimulant working on Dopamine would kill this apathy. And yes, I have tried combos of lots of things, but not Effexor and Remeron. There's a word for this stupid thing. Anhedonia, inability to feel joy, lack of interest in everyday activities. You wouldn't think that would be too hard to fix, but wow! Anyway, thanks for ideas and if you get more, PLEASE let me know. Docs in my state are pretty weak. Thanks. John.
