Hi Jason,
Thanks for the research info. All I can tell you is that for me hormonal therapy has been hell! Be it in combination, progestin and estrogen or a progestin alone, the results are almost the same,
a progressive worsening of depression. The problem is that my Pdoc seems to downplay the role of synthetic hormones and wants to send me to a colleague of his who is a pychopharmacologist because my Pdoc questions whether Effexor is appropriate for me or not. I guess at 225 mg. it would be difficult to answer that question. From everything I've read, I'am not even close to maxing out yet. What do you think about combination therapy and what might I expect from seeing a "psychopharmacologist". And exactly what is this specialty? Thanks, Anne
