I just read somewhere that Dopamine system recovery can take about 4 years to fully occur...so maybe you're right around the corner from getting better.
Also, do you ever wonder if after a prolonged period of time in this state you've healed but are so discouraged that you develop a depression similar to the original symptoms? By no means does this mean go back to pharmacology, but have you tried other counter-depression measures besides the supplements? I'm sure you have, but in the off chance you've given up hope in traditional methods for combating stress/anxiety like CBT.
I don't doubt that our nervous systems/brains have been compromised, and someone gave me a recommendation for a neuropsych that acknowledges drug induced neurological problems so I may give him a try though it'll be expensive.
Anyway, keep me posted on your developments, feel free to e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we don't have to go through this message board for a more or less two way correspondence.
