Sulpicia, thanks for your kind reply.

It's 'funny' but I feel that this med has kept suicidal thoughts at bay, but I simply cannot go on feeling nothing.

I don't know which is worse, depression anxiety or emotional numbness. I guess it's the one that's dominating at the time. Trouble is the grass is never greener in this game is it?

I've taken a huge gamble anyhow and ditched the neuroleptic and gone stright back to paxil, which has worked for me like a dream twice before (even at a lowly 20mg), but not this time round. It's probably a foolish thing to do, without consulting my doc, but it was that or row my own boat and I'm sure I cannot do this.

I live in the UK where Docs do not seem too hot on augmenting, sticking rigidly to monotherapy.
Round here that's the case anyway.

As for other meds, there's a tonne I've yet to try, but it's knowing where to go next and it's the waiting game i can't stand.
I'll just be keeping an eye on this board I guess

Thanks again
