Could that something be related to the fact that it's a lot less temporary than a medication you can stop if it does no good? Frankly, I would have a lot of hesitation about it, too -- and not *only* because I'm so screwed up about treatment at this point.

> A recent study posted on Medline reported disappointed numbers. Only 28% of people were improved after a year. These were not remissions. Remissions were less than 16%. I don't know. Given that these people were treatment-resistent, perhaps this isn't that bad. Maybe I should consider it.

Remind me: did you try the TMS? Any effect? If not, how about giving it a try now? If nothing else, it's not as permanent as the VNS implant...

I'd email you the new psychopharmacologist I just saw, if I could, because he does seem to be pretty systematic, and specializes in TRD. Since I can't, though, may I remind you that you've told me you always forget that tianepine is out there as something you haven't tried? There are other drugs, to, probably -- reboxetine? Manerix? Oxycontin? Buprenorphine (sp?)?

Regardless of all that, though -- I'm so sorry this didn't work out for you, Scott. That must feel terrible for you, and very hopeless. I wish I could help, beyond saying that I care about you.
