If you're going to try ECT then it might be worth asking about Bi-Frontal ECT, not that I know much about ECT fullstop but I've heard a few people on this board saying it suppose to be just as effective as Bilateral but without so much memory loss.

Also, thought I'd mention that when I got really depressed again three years ago, the psychiatrist initially tried me on 20mg, this had a bad effect although I'd responded really well to it when I was about 27. After trying loads of drugs and a two years down the line a new psychiatrist decided to put me straight on 40mg without a slow increase, initially felt bad the first week but from then on was much much better than the previous two years. Still not great but a lot more in control.

I've just tried dropping back down on the seroxat to 30mg and am not feeling as good so I hope that if I go back up to 40 I'll feel better again. You never know though do you, it's hard to tell with half of this medication how it's going to affect you but I hope you start to feel better soon.
