Hi bleauberry,

The first thing that strikes me as odd is the fact you have suffered for so many years without a maoi trial? Perhaps this may have been at your reluctance though.
My illness seem quite simular to yours although I started off with major panic attacks in early teen followed by depression.
I had some success with ECT in my late 20's... I believe you had mentioned treatment as well? Have you considered trying ECT again?
The other point I'd like to make is many people rule out certain A/D'S , Benzo's etc. as they were not successful in past.
I believe the hidden jewel may be overlooked as, perhaps trying a past med, but in combination with others.
If someone is not successful with say zoloft and buspar that should not rule out zoloft with another med.
Anyway, I see you have not tried Effexor. I had some success with it but I had to start off slow due to startup anxiety. I'm sure I'd be anxious if I switched vitamins.
You may want to add remeron, if for none other than your weight issue? It worked well for me augmented with effexor. I also require clonazepam and have been on it for approx. 20 years. I find it helps with some of the med induced nervousness along with a subtle mood stabilizer.

Goodluck with your appointment. God only knows the countless variables we are faced with.
