As SLS said, there is a lot of work to do. Plan on 6 months, buckle up the seat belts, and hold on.

I dunno, I guess you could stay where you are or add yet something else. I don't like either of those options. If these meds are doing it, what does that tell you? They are missing the target maybe?

I'm glad you are better than you were. My hunch is that it is only one or two of those meds responsible for that. The others are either doing nothing or working against you. For sure they are putting a tremendous undue strain on the liver and immune system, further weakening you and strenghening whatever enemy is working against you.

As you reduce the dose of any of them, a worsening of depression can probably be expected. It is probably not a return of the original depression, but rather a withdrawal induced depression as your brain needs time to adapt to less of whatever the drug was doing. For example, if I take a serotonin med, it doesn't help me feel better, and then I wean off, well, guess what, I will get depression coming off it. My synapses cannot adapt instantly to the decreased amount of serotonin overnight, even though the previously increased amount of serotonin did not help. Make sense?

I think your best longterm prognosis is here:
1. Wean off as much as possible to allow the introduction of Parnate first choice, Nardil second choice.
2. Find out why the depression is there. It is easier and cheaper than people think. It is probably something that the neurotransmitter modulaters (psych drugs) don't touch.
3. Try oddball things. The previous post on the diabetes med is a shining example. Just because someone doesn't test positive for diabetes doesn't mean their insulin receptors aren't clogged up. And how do you know the thyroid receptors aren't clogged up without trying T3 to competitively remove what is clogging them? Of forskolin to competively remove whatever is clogging the adrenal/cortisol receptors. How do you know you don't have a common yeast or bacterial infection? How do you know you haven't accumulated heavy metals in your brain? These things are all easy to test for and dirt cheap.
