who is ordering all the meds for you? what is their level of expertise? How long have you been seeing this doctor? have you ever gotten a second opinion? I don't know where to begin to make any suggestion... all i can say is get another opinion from an expert, who can get you weaned off of this combination and work with you to find out exactly what is helping you.

where do you live? US or other. Perhaps one of the users here can suggest a doc.

i feel for you...there has to be a better, less complicated combination of meds to use. I don't think even a real psychopharmacologist would combine that many meds, it doesn't seem like you could know what med is doing what for you.

What med did you start on, how long ago and what was the sequence of when each medication was added and why? did you keep any record of this?

I have MDD and nardil was what one doc gave me many years ago as only the second med tried, and it lifted my depression like magic. that was before all of the SSRI's were developed. I have a rule for myself, 3 meds is the top number of meds i will combine, it might have been 4, but i was not comfortable with that.

More meds always makes the situation more complicated to figure out, not to mention knowing what each med could be doing to your brain or organs, that are responsiblefor the elimination of the drugs from your body, i.e. liver or kidneys.

is your doctor that skilled that he or she is unconcerned about this combination of meds that has been prescribed, presumedly, by this one doctor?

Second opinion, sooner, rather than later.
