Thanks so much for your reply. Since you did not list Celexa as one of the previous ssri's you've tried, I guess you never took that, right?
I took Wellbutrin for a long time, but in looking back, I don't know how I stayed on it for so long. At the time, I thought it was the least of the evils, but it wasn't. I went through YEARS of insomnia and anxiety on that medicine. I tried combining it with so many other meds to deal with the insomnia, but most of the time, the combinations made the insomnia even worse.
You mentioned that you take Klonopin. That's such a good drug! I like the fact that it is longer-acting than so many other benzodiazapines and, therefore, causes fewer rebound symptoms.
I also have arthritis, but not osteo-arthritis. I thought that high EPA fish oil was having a slightly beneficial effect until the past week or so, when I experienced the most severe joint pains I've ever had. Perhaps it's hormonal. I don't know. Some of my joints were visibly swollen, and they felt as if they were burning. Do you take Advil rather than Aspirin because it helps more at relieving pain or for another reason? Do you know what dose Advil you take?
