> Hi,
> When my depression/anxiety resurfaced six years ago, this time with suicidal ideations, I tried lots of different medications and the SSRIs increased my anxiety and suicidal ideations. Then two years later high dose Seroxat seemed to work then two years later pooped out.
> I've since tried adding buspar, thyroid hormone, lamictal to no avail. Then I came off Seroxat and felt awful. Last Christmas I was seriously contemplating suicide as I'd just about had enough.
> This year, I have tried lexapro and lexapro and buspar and although it lifted my mood a bit I felt physically uncomfortable on it,alsoo sleeping way too much.
> I'm now back on Seroxat and although I feel better than I did off it, I'm sort of tired and restless during the day and then exhausted in the evening. At about 7pm in the day I get sooooo tired even though I got up at 10.00am today.
> The SSRIs used to make me more anxious and now although they are helping with the anxiety and depression (slightly) I'm just working, sleeping, working, sleeping etc.
> I think I'm going to give this another five years and then I am just going to throw in the towel because I'm getting so sick of not having a life.
> Has anyone got any suggestions on what I should do next. I was thinking maybe I should add small dose selegeline, or should switch to zooloft or add a more stimulating tricyclic to the Seroxat or add Effexor to Seroxat.
> I tried adding Wellbutrin about a year or two ago and it didn't seem to do anything but then I had ordered it off the web and thought that perhaps maybe it wasn't the real thing.
> I tried Mirtazapine on it's own and with the Seroxat and on it's own it didn't help. It helped a little with the Seroxat.
> I don't know what to do or try anymore.
> I'm also taking Rhodiola Rosea.

I would really look into trying effexor. I had the same problems with the SSRI's esp. Paxil. I alternated with anxiety and lethergy. I take Effexor and lamictal. Works great for me. The best combo I've been on.
