conventional wisdom on poop-out?

Posted by Ignatz on February 26, 2001, at 10:22:21

I'm wondering what people think about "poop-out"--does it actually happen? I've taken SSRIs for about 8 years now: Zoloft for 6, Effexor for 2. In the past year, I've felt glum a lot of the time-- not horribly depressed, just a little down. Beginning to take Provigil (modafinil) has really made me notice this-- the days I don't take it,my body kind of hurts and I feel fairly despondent. My p-doc insists that antidepressants don't poop out, it's just that people feel sad sometimes. Personally, I think I might need to switch meds, or amp up on the Effexor dosage (I'm at 150). There's nothing in my life that could be "causing" this gloominess- enjoyable job, good relationship, good therapist (diff. from p-doc)...
Any ideas?
