Hi Guys,
I have suffered through at least three major depressions and a level of dysthymia my entire adult life. After trials with many different combinations of medications, my first major depression ended like a flash of light after four weeks on 75mg of Nardil. I am sure not saying it is like this for everybody, but my depression is a biological disease of the brain. In a period of one or two days my thinking took a 180 degree turn. All of my problems that were insurmountable suddenly became "No Problem". I believe that no amount of therapy could have done this for me. Everyone is different. I know people that their childhood and developement years were full of abuse and trama. These environmental issues had a huge effect on their level of functioning. However, before my first major depression hit at about age 40, I was a highly functioning adult. I built my own computer networking business and owned at least fifty rental properties. The depression took that wealth away. I believe that if the doctors would of quit taking me off Nardil, the only med that worked, I could have enjoyed a much quicker recovery. Now with at least three major depressions, I will be on meds the rest of my life. I don't like the idea of that, but the alternative is worse.
