Anti-depressant options--fading fast

Posted by Laree on December 1, 2003, at 9:41:56

I was diagnosed with clinical depression about 6 years ago. Since then, I have tried many SSRI's/anti-depressants, inc.: Prozac, Elavil (Tricylic, i know), Celexa, Zoloft, Lexapro, Effexor XR, and now, Wellbutrin. It's actually held a pattern, too, as I have had the most success on Lexapro and Zoloft (at diff. times), and i think i was on Lexapro 2 different times. This last time i was put on only 10 mg. and claimed it was not working, when i was on 20 mg./day previously. Also, I thought it was upping my appetite, but in retrospect, it could have been attributed to other factors. Now I am on W-B XR, and I don't like it at all. My dose was recently upped, but since I am already on Adderall, all it has really done has made me seemingly more jumpy. I've been having extreme depressive episodes--ones that lead me to almost dialing a crisis counselor, etc., late at night--and i don't know that my pdoc will switch me again. i need help. can anyone give me some pointers, please?? Thanks!
