Multiple Intolerances to Antidepressants

Posted by Josh37 on July 20, 2004, at 21:01:11

Hi there. I have trouble adjusting to most antidepressants. The newer SSRI's give me severe GI tract disturbances. Prozac makes me completely apathetic. Tricyclics, including desipramine, either make me tired and/or give me BPH (prostate inflammation). Effexor made me nautious and tired, as did Lexapro. Wellbutrin made me break out in hives. Dexedrine amped me, but did not help with my depression, in addition to which, I don't want to take anything physically addictive. Currently, I self-medicate (with caffeine in the morning), and alternate between neurontin, percocet, ambien and klonopin at night. I feel like I am out of control and abusing substances, but I just feel terrible such a large portion of the time. My doctor said he might try me on Mirapex (a dopamine agonist used for Parkinson's) or Lamictal. Can someone help me or give me advice? Thanks.
