Hi Jack,
Thanks for your message and assurance that my brain will get back to normal. I hope you are right!
I have never used any recreational drugs or abused any sort of drug.There is absolutely no doubt that the combination of Remeron and Effexor has caused my present condition.
As for ECT or lithium, I am not prepared to risk the possible side effects of ECT. Perhaps lithium would help, I will mention this to my doc when I see him.
I am actually beginning to feel better now that I have stopped taking AD's, but still have the problem that my brain is now so sensitive that I am afraid to take any form of drugs in case it makes things worse.

> Sorry to hear about your bad experience. Do you have any mood disorders? Have you abused recreational drugs or any drugs for that matter while on the bad combo (or soon before)? Can you think of anything that may have triggered it besides that combo?? What are you particularly sensitive to now?
> Look, I'm no doctor, but perhaps this combo may have f%cked up your receptors or your brain's general electrical system. Maybe taking LIthium for a while or trying ECT may help (I don't know much about ECT, but personally I'd be scared to try it).
> If it makes you feel any better I'm sure soon your brain will return to normal.
