Wow Jeff, that sure is frustrating. I've felt the same way many times. Sometimes I actually think the wash-outs were good in the longrun, because they gave me a chance to get to know the nature of my depression better, to come to grips with how serious it is, and to regain the strength to try another med. Actually, not just another med, but another approach. A different class of meds. Sometimes a cleansing period after a drug failure, I think, is beneficial to reassess the whole situation and draw up a new plan of action with a clear mind, reviewing the past, assessing the present, and mapping the future. Question though, what meds HAVEN'T you tried? Have you tried just ADs? Mood stabilizers? Anti-psychotics? There is definitely something out there that will work, and it might not be a straight-forward anitdepressant approach. Wishing you a smooth day. JohnL.
