22 years old and undergoing ECT

Posted by bipolarspectrum on December 28, 2003, at 15:40:15

Hello all,
Just looking for some similar stories with happy endings. I'm 22 years old currently undergoing ECT. I've tried approximately 22 different psychoactive drugs and have been unable to tolerate the side-effects. I have major depression with melancholic features, and my pdoc believes i may have some bipolar as i had a hypomanic-like response to wellbutrin monotherapy. After 5 unilateral to no avail, I was switched to bilateral, of which I have had 3 so far. Although I do experience a slight mood improvement right after a treatment, it leaves in a day or two and I dip back into deep depression. I was wondering how many treatments others had had to feel a significant improvement???
