I would imagine that it would have some effect (and it sounds like anything would be better than what you're experiencing. I don't know how much you know about the endocrine systems, but it's so complex. The cascades that take place are so complicated and dependent upon one another to function properly. If one step is not working for some reason, then the rest of the line never gets a chance to express itself. These things that don't get expressed could either activate something or downregulate it. That's why I think the meds thing is a little far fetched. I think half the time the meds do one thing right, but at the other time, they'r doing something else wrong. Psychiatry is definitely in the dark ages and having experienced the latest and greatest for the last five years, it's awfully apparent. Barring any miracles, I will likely give the MAOI's a try (nervous about that, but I hear they're quite effective) and if that doesn't work I'll be signing up for ECT. Again, keep us posted of your progress and take care.
