cecilia,
I sure feel for your suffering. With all of the meds you have tried, were there any that gave some relief? I haven't read what your diagnosis is, but from your posts I am assuming it is treatment resistant major atypical depression with social or generalized anxiety disorder. If so, you are very similar to me in that regard. If the selegiline patch does not help, may I suggest another try with Nardil. Many people take a full six to eight weeks after the effective dose of 1mg/kg is reached before results are seen. This is sometimes very hard to achieve because of the early and varied side effects of the medication. For me, the worst was the weight gain, since my atypical depression had already moved that in the wrong direction. However, without this drug, I would not be alive today to write this note to you. If, for any reason, you or your doctor cut off your trial of Nardil before being at the effective dose for six weeks, please try the med again. It is only used on treatment resistant patients, and when it does work it can open the world to you again.
Wishing you the best,
Jedi
