Hello Tom, I understand where you are comming from. I suffered for years without realizing what my problem was (Dysthymia / ADD-H / taking lithium, Celexa, Welbutrin - The lithium has made the greatest impact). AD's have made a huge impact in my life, however, I have had my experiences (many) with side effects. It seems that yours are greater in number. All I know is that once (approx. 2 years ago) I tried to quit everything - BAD DECISION! Whether it is biological or psychological is a great question and cannot be answered unless one tries both sides to see what works best. Not trying to overstate the obvious, if someone is depressed, there is a biological factor involved. Will therapy or meds or combo be best? It is a tough question which you will recieve a mixed response. Is there anything you have not tried? I once told my doc that I was ready to "throw in the towel" and he talked me out of it. God bless him! On the other hand, it was a psychiatrist who encouraged me to drop my meds and as mentioned above, with bad results. I am not trying to confuse or make matters worse, but if you decide to not take any extra meds, and do not have a positive outcome with therapy, I would reconsider the possibility of a new med. Who knows, it may be what you are looking for. It took me about 12 tries to find something that helps. You did not mention your type of depression or what you have taken. That info (if you feel you would like to share it) might help the forum come up with some suggestions. Blessings,

S. Suggs
