Hi. You might be comforted to learn that there are many people who take MAOIs or tricyclics and find them superior to the newer drugs. IMO, the side effects of MAOIs in particular have been exaggerated.

The doses that you mentioned, though high, are not unknown. You might be an ultrarapid metaboliser of some of these drugs, or you might need very high doses for other reasons.

Have you tried combining medications? Sometimes when people have tried a whole lot of things with only limited success, combinations turn out to be the best remedy. You can combine two antidepressants or add a different type of drug. Some of the things that people find helpful in augmenting antidepressants are lithium, anticonvulsants, buspirone, benzodiazepines, atypical antipsychotics, thyroid hormones, opioids, certain antiparkinsonian drugs (e.g., pramipexole), pindolol, and probably other things I've forgotten.

So anyway, like, welcome.
