Glad to hear that you are doing better. I am still trying drug after drug. It has been almost 11 years now since my diagnosis. Currently I am taking Pristiq and Wellbutrin. Except the insurance company refuses to pay for the Pristiq because every other drug has not been tried.

I have tried: Zoloft alone, Effexor IR and XR; Remeron alone; Wellbutrin IR, SR and XL; Remeron and Wellbutrin together and then with lithium; Wellbutrin and Effexor, Serzone and Wellbutrin, Wellbutrin and Celexa, Zoloft and Wellbutrin, and Trazodone. In addition to augmentation with lithium, I also took Neurontin, Buspar and Deplin in combination with the various antidepressants.

So far only the Wellbutrin has had any positive effect. So now I am appealing their decision and awaiting an answer.

They also have told me that my benefits for pdoc visits were exhausted toward the end of last year and they refused to pay for the last 2 or 3. Nevermind that my state has something called Timothy's Law, which requires that mental illnesses such as major depression be treated on par with physical illness... When I called the insurance company, the first member service person didn't even know what Timothy's Law was... Then my Dr. said he'd gotten it straightened out and they'd agreed to pay for the last visits of 2008. Yesterday I got a letter from insurance company saying my benefits were exhausted and they aren't going to pay for 12/30/08.

I'm so sick of it all.
