Help! Depression back--I see pdoc on Monday

Posted by gardenergirl on April 17, 2005, at 2:04:11

Ugh, this has been building since early March, I think. But now I am in a major depressive episode. I've got all the criteria: insomnia, decreased appetite, loss of interest in stuff, isolation, low energy, low mood, irritability, difficulty concentrating, tearfulness, etc.

Current meds: Nardil 60mg
Armour thyroid 60 mg
Topamax 25 mg (down from 50 mg as of 8 days ago. I started this around March 10 to try to counter nardil weight gain, but the SE's are annoying me.)
I also did light therapy fairly diligently, with good response fall to spring. I stopped with the solstice and the daylight savings time.

I have tried a number of SSRI's in the past, and none have had much of an effect. Also tried Celexa with Wellbutrin prior to going on Nardil, also no real effect. Nardil is first to ever put depression totally in remission and actually allow periods of feeling pretty good.

So any suggestions? I do have a GP appt. on Monday as well, and I will have him check thyroid, as it still doesn't "feel" quite right on the Armour. I used to take 50 mcg of Synthroid which worked well, but then TSH went up again, and I switched to Armour.

Any ideas and recommendations are welcome. One note, I have taken up to 67.5 mg Nardil before with good results. 75 mg gives me intolerable agitation and restlessness.

Thanks in advance.
