Hi Cecilia,

If you are disabled and want to die with every breath you take, isn't *any* chance of improvement better than no chance? You describe people that have taken an existential view of themselves. Why not do both this and medication? With an experienced psydoc the side-effects don't have to be a major problem.

Persistent for better or for worse,
Jon

> I`ve been noticing how people from the UK find that their doctors give up on them after a few trials, whereas in the US they keep trying ever more complicated regimes (at least if the patient has good insurance). Sometimes I wonder which is better, hope is good, sure, but so many people can`t tolerate the side effects of high dose multi-med regimes. Doctors like Dr. Goldberg don`t see them because they finally give up on their own and decide depression without side effects is better than depression with them. I`d be curious to know what percent of people are actually able to tolerate some of these elaborate cocktails-doctors say such and such percentage inprove on such and such regime, but they never say what percent was never able to get to therapeutic doses on said regime. A Discouraged Cecilia
