> Well, my doctor agreed to increase my dosage of desipramine from 250mg to 300mg. I did this as of Wednesday. I have not "sprung back" to the robust antidepressant response I once had. I am not too happy with having been significantly under-dosed for over two months. I still expect to recover, but it might be weeks or months before my system regains the ground lost. The receptors (or whatever) have been allowed too much time to revert back to their pathological conditions.

Hi Scott,

I am sorry you aren't getting the response you hoped for. Thats stinks when you've waited so long just to have to wait longer. But it has only been days, you never know. The brain does funny things :-)

The good news is that he agreed to go to 300mg. So at least you have something to look forward to. So in the end, you will have all you wanted. Not bad. I will be thinking of you and hoping you are feeling well again soon. I have faith it will not be long.

From start to finish, I waited 3 months for a response to Parnate. The longest time a deeply depressed person has been willing wait (I'll have to check guiness book of records).

I don't know many people who could have convinced me to do that. I am grateful I did not spend that time enduring failure after failure on other meds.

Having faith that relief is in sight is the next best thing to remission. Feel better soon.
