Thanks much to all who responded. Wayne, I will keep the naltrexone suggestion in mind. James and Elizabeth re: your lithium suggestion, I forgot to mention in my earlier post that I have also tried Lithium to augment other A/D's a few years back ( over 600mg/day). All it did for me was cause me to run to the bathroom every half hour or so... until I got so tired waking up 10 plus times a night that I had to discontinue it.

Elizabeth, your comment on comorbid conditons masquerading as or causing depression is very perceptive. I have known for years that I have anywhere from mild to severe sleep apnea (OSA) depending on when and where the sleep study was done, and periodic leg movements (PLMD) in sleep. The latter is controlled by anti-parkinson's meds. Unfortnuately I am one of those rare individuals who have not benefited from continous positive air pressure (CPAP)therapy. I currently have between 20 and 40 arousals from sleep every hour at night (long story)and never get into deep sleep. Sort of a chicken and egg situation -- which came first the sleep disorder or depression?

Anyhoo, my latest A/D regimen is Serzone (450mg), Wellbutrin SR (300mg), Buspar (30mg) plus a bunch of meds for other conditions. So far, no benefit...sigh.. but it's only been two weeks.
