I wish I had good answers for your questions. All I know from my own experiences is that trial and error is the only way to find out. Trying to figure out the clues to match them up to a particular medication is sometimes helpful, but sometimes not.
From your descriptions and your own analysis, it would seem that dopamine and gaba could be major players. But choosing the right meds based on that is probably, sadly, still trial and error.
Wish I had something more helpful. I'm struggling too, so across the miles at least know you aren't the only one! :-)
Since the serotonin meds were not helpful for you, at least that narrows the choices a little bit. Just a crazy off the wall thought, but I wonder how St Johns Wort might work for you? I mean, it has reuptake inhibition of dopamine, gaba, serotonin, and norepinephrine. Just a thought. Honestly, it is so hard to predict things.
Geez. I hate being depressed. So tired of it.
