In reply to Unresponsive to SSRIs? What worked?, posted by Silly Brain on September 17, 2002, at 15:43:36
All can say is keep trying. Eventually you are likely to find something or a combination of things that will work for you. Since i started treatment i have been on zoloft, effexor, remeron, welbutrin, serzone, nortryptiline(sp?) celexa, prozac and ritalin and varous combinations of the above. Some worked a little, some worked pretty good but had bad side effects. I am now on a combo of prozac 20mg/day, wellbutin
250mgs/day and ritalin 20mg twice a day. It took a lot of trial and error but this combo has been working real well for me, with little in the way of side effects. I can get my self to work, actually get something done, i am able to socialize without feeling completely cut off from people, and my mood has been good. its been going that way for over a month now and i am starting to believe it might last! Hang in there.
