What would be right for me?

Posted by Adam on July 5, 1999, at 19:31:52

I have suffered from OCD (specifically, body dysmorphia)
depression and social anxiety most of my life. It has
been so bad that I have had to be hospitalized and
recieved ECT. When I was in the hospital, doctors pre-
scribed Celexa, which caused complete anorgasmia. Later
it was suggested that I try parnate, but I resisted, not
wanting to deal with the dietary restrictions. I have
since tried a combo of Remeron and Zoloft, which seems
to have stabilized me. I do not, however, feel "good"
or joyful, if you will. Anhedonia seems a pretty good
description. I'm not in pieces, but I wonder quite
often "Is this as good as it gets?" Should I expect joy
out of life? Can self-esteem come from a pill? Do
these drugs really allow you to feel happy? I'm rather
disillusioned. The thought of trying Parnate scares me,
but I'm getting to the point where I think I might risk
trying something new, if that's advisable. I guess
that's what I need, good advice.

P.S. I've also been interested in reboxetine. Any idea
when it is supposed to be approved?
