Unfortunately, I don't respond to any of those. I have responded to wellbutrin before but only once and it wore off. Any other attempts with it did not work. In case this helps illustrate it, I find lamotrigine more stimulating.

Parnate plainly did not work. once when I took desipramine and parnate together on a desperate impulse, I had a response, I'm not sure it would have been a response I would have tolerated 24/7 tho, and my doctor would never officially rx such a combo.

Atypical depression causing severe inertia, anhedonia, neurosis, alcoholism, and unreliable cognition would be something that my mother may have made up my mother's diagnosis with if she had sought help. She had epilepsy that was once treated and her seizures did not come back. She nearly never worked, I'd say most days of the year she didn't even get dressed, bedridden would have described my mother's life fairly well. I do not know anyone else biologically related to her. I have wondered if similar illness forced her biological parents to put her up for adoption.

My Dad's side is strange. Parkinson's runs in my Dad's family, he now has it; but life patterns suggesting weak dopaminergic function are present in many of my relatives.

My paternal grandmother almost unquestionably has a very severe personality disorder, not borderline, more narcissistic, and to the point of completely irrational grandiose thinking. Also never worked. Hired immigrants to take care of her children, while she drank, had parties, and pretended she was famous. Not at all making this up, she somehow managed to get herself into the newspaper on several occasions, all based on complete b*llsh*t she made up. She was on the front page of the Citizen with her arms around Paul Martin's neck when he was Prime Minister. She thinks we should be paying to have her live in the Chateau Laurier for the rest of her life. There's no "action" where she's living now. Alcoholic throughout her entire life, extremely emotionally abusive, impossible to be around.

Anyway, I have no idea what this would spell out, but there are enough examples in my family to really make me worry about my genes.
