I have atypical depression too, I soooo understand.

A couple of points: one about reboxetine. I took it for 3 months and it made my anxiety MUCH worse- I know a couple of other people have posted here saying the same happened to them. So if you do have anxiety along with the depression, I'd tread carefully. When I got referred to a pdoc and I described my case to him, and mentioned I was on reboxetine, he said straight away you have to come off that, it'll only make your anxiety worse. Bingo! It had no effect on my mood either. It did activate me, but in a very retsless, uncomfortable and anxious way. It also made me have a lot of suicidal thoughts, which I didn't before.

Regards alternative treatments, is it really a fact that MAOIs poop out after a while? There seem to be a couple of people who occasionally post here for whom that hasn't happened. If you are just looking at postings on depression forums I'd be a bit careful about assuming they're representative of the wider picture, as it's likely that most people for whom it hasn't pooped out are not here, or don't post often. Just a bit of hope there.

My pdoc said that SSRIs sometimes work for atypical- they didn't for me, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't for others.
