Hi again. Boy you sure do know alot about depression. I thought I was educated until I found this Psycho Babble site. It's like getting alot of very scientific and really personal input about people's struggles.

Afew questions if you don't mind...

What does euthymic mean?

When you say....I should have stayed with it and added a dopamine agonist like amantadine or bromocriptine for the apathy and the sex.

How do you know what to add? I keep trying to tell my doctor I need something with dopamine or norephinephrine. Even though I'm not really sure what the drugs will do. I just feel that SSRI's aren't enough on their own. Shouldn't he know these things???

Briefly, what symptoms do serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine target? I know it probably is not a simple thing to explain but the residual symptoms of depression for me have always been apathy, loss of focus, problem with memory...Vague, but very real, as you know.

The depression goes away but I'm left with a feeling of not really being connected to the world. I function but don't enjoy things. Also I have trouble reading and understanding simple things. Come to think of it, I have always had to read things over and over before I get it. I seem to miss something in the process between reading and understanding.

Thanks for all your insight and experience. I see my doctor tomorrow. Today and the past few days I've hada whopper of a headache. Another thing to keep me from having a good day.
