my new Dx

Posted by floatingbridge on August 17, 2009, at 20:59:32

So I asked my pdoc/T today just what he thought my dx was. Over a year ago, when he first dx'd me, he said BP nos. Today he said recurrent major depressive disorder, treatment resistant (of course).

Well, the prognosis for that is not great. He said we have to get you in remission and keep you there. Lithium at low doses was a possible nueroprotector--but he also said most ad's like pristiq also have some of that quality.

I'm in shock right now, with new reading to do. I don't even understand what depression is, really. In reading Wikipedia, seems I've moved from a younger atypical, to now, as I've gotten older, a melancholic depression.

Two questions:

1) How long can one treat depression with 55mg of dexedrine a day? (plus klonopin + pristiq)

2) Do MAOI's provide any neuroprotection? Even healing? (I've been depressed a long, long time)

There's today's update. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

thanks a bunch for being here!
