I think there are plenty of people who have the problem we have, but I'm not so sure the medical community, or the sufferers see it like we've described. I have a feeling it would more likely be portrayed as intolerance to the meds. I believe my diagnosis is unipolar depression. The problem is that's in the absence of meds. I also now have significant comorbid anxiety. It seems very easy for me to get pushed into irritability, anger, or agitation on any type of energizing med. This leaves me stuck mostly with the sedating meds, which just kills energy and motivation.

I am now taking 50mg Luvox along with .5mg Clonazepam daily. It isn't working all that well. I am depressed in the mornings, and spend all day working out of it. I need something more.
