I am sorry you are feeling seems like when we need answers most sometimes they just don't come.

This is my observation after 3 years on meds and 3 years of itensive research on the internet. The people who are doing well on their meds and dosages are not on the internet....they are happy well adjusted folks living a fullfilling life. Most of the people, myself included, who spend a lot of time reading posts and staying on the internet are still in search of some med or combo that will set them free from their demons so to speak so you will get more negativity than positive stories. There appears to be huge amount of med jumping and or changing in hopes of some cure or "bad-aid" Oh no no that again.

To your question about poop out. I have many friends on different AD'S doing great. I am a recovering alcoholic and many of my firends found out after getting sober thewy had underlying mentat health isuues in need of meds. I know one guy who has been on the same dose of Effexor for 3 years and is doing tolerance or poop out. His life is going very well in all aspects. I have another friend who has been on and off of Prozac for 12 years and has experienced the sam effectiveness at the same dose. I have another friend on Prozac and Effexor together after a serious depressive episode with hospitalization and has been doing great for about 18 months again no dosage increases from original titrations. All my real life friends are all doing wonderfull on their meds and don't seem to have the problem I do finding the right one or with no side effects. I think that poop out is much more common on the internet than in real life. Real life success stories do not take the time out of their newly found happy existences to tell us about it....they simply live.

Now my disclaimer.....their are some wonderfull people here who are doing well and for altruistic reasons answer stupind nagging questions from needy people like me in order that we might get comfort or get pointed in the right direction.....I.E Cam, John L., Salarmy, Lorraine, Grapebubblegum, Fred Potter, etc.etc,etc,

I hope this helps.
