> I'm frustrated cause he (and another doctor awhile back) said that I'd taken all the medicines & there was nothing left.
> That can't possibly be true!!!! I've not taken TONS of drugs I see in these very forums. Here's a list of the drugs I've tried & that either never worked or stopped working after awhile:

You're right, it isn't true. From your list, it looks as though you've tried pretty much all the SSRIs and one TCA. That leaves all the other TCAs and the MAOIs, as well as a few other, unrelated anti-depressants, like Remeron. And that's not even mentioning combining anti-depressants...

> Prozac-WORSE
> Paxil-WORSE
> Pamelor-Worked for a bit
> Wellbutrin-Numbed me & then grew a rash
> Trazodone
> Celexa-WORSE
> Lexapro-WORSE
> Effexor-Worked for the longest time but side effects & extreme sleepiness made me finally quit it!
> Cymbalta-Just tried this..was a zombie 1 weekend & then quit it.

If Effexor worked well for you, I strongly urge you to give Cymbalta another try. I've been taking it now since late August, and I will tell you that most of what I experienced on it changed after the start up phase. On the other hand, my depression didn't fully remit until we added Wellbutrin. It may be that you'll need some sort of combination, too.

Hope that helps.
