> Andrew, my trip to Poland went O'K. However, it was scary to see how much that country has suffered due to changes from the socialism to capitalistic system. No more free education and free healthcare services. Instead, there is unemployment, crime, and diminuition of the middle class.
Going back to my depression problem, it is a treatment-resistant depression, with SAD elements, that's what doctors said. However, they don't know why I can tolerate the high amounts of medication without antidepressant effect. You see, I'm interesting case to them. I've never experienced mania, but my major symptoms are the extreme loss of energy, the loss of concentration,
psychomotor slowdown. And yes, I've tried all kinds of drugs: SSRI,tricyclics, stimulants, moclobemide,wellbutrin, effexor,celexa, revia, cytomel, lamictal, combinations of above...Having degree had to give up my job, and yes, depression made me handicapped.
I won't take Lithum as medications made me fat enough, and that causes more depression instead. Prozac has never worked for me, neither reboxetine.
I'm chemically the total opposite of JohnL. Hated Prozac, loved Wellbutrin and Moclobemide.
Heaven't try MAOI's yet, but from the previous experience I can assume it will be the same. Depression lasts 5 years, tolerance I developed in September 98.
