I have always had "major depression", but now my illness seems to be taking a new turn. I am not able to tolerate the AD's anymore without great irritability and raciness. This is something i have been discussing with my pdoc. I think she is a bit bewildered. I used to be so dark and dramatic all the time. Now I get wildly optimistic and talkative for brief periods.

I have always been on some mood stabilizer over the last 10 years or so. They work for a while, then I have to change to another because I can't take side effects any longer (depakote-flat mood and major hair loss, tegretol-horrible GI discomfort, pain.) Trileptal is working well for me now. I just can't go any higher on this med either due to adverse effects. So I don't think I get the full benefit of the med. I was on Lithium years ago. All I remember is the hand tremor. I was so shaky and never in therapuetic range on my blood tests.

So the search goes on for the right cocktail. But, as a post says above, this maybe as good as it gets...

Thanks for you post.
