Hi Roland.

That's a heck of a list of drugs you have tried.

> I feel friendly, in a good mood, but my face shows something else....

Absolutely true! People respond differently to me when I am feeling improved. I have a brigher and friendlier countenance that appears to affect people differently - even if only passing by them on the street or in a supermarket. It is frustrating. It's hard enough to meet people as it is without having to break through a body-language barrier.

> There are no real options left anymore. I reviewed my "tried drug sheet" and apart from Amitriptyline and Nortriptyline (which pooped out quite much :-( ) Clomipramine was the 3rd "best"

I don't see imipramine. I don't see Effexor. I don't see lithium. I don't see thyroid. I don't see Tegretol or Trileptal. Of course, I don't see all the combinations you have tried.

Is metyrapone available in your country?

How did you respond to crappy moclobemide?

* What drugs did you have a partial or brief response to?


You still have friends here. If you smile at me, I will smile back at you.
