Hi Scott,

When I was in my 20s, the first antidepressant I was prescribed was prothiaden (I think it is also known as doxepin) and it worked wonderfully, I couldn't have asked for a better response. You know everything looked and seemed brighter, I felt more relaxed than I had ever felt and was much more motivated.

Then the prothiaden seemed to start pooping out after about 5 years. I was put on seroxat and that worked wonderfully as well.

I think I would have responded to any antidepressant I was given in my 20s but for some reason after hitting 35 I seem to have become resistant to everything.

I did try prothiaden (doxepin) again at the age of 35, at much higher doses and it just caused me a lot of anxiety.

Clomipramine is the second tricyclic I've tried (I'm now 43) and although it seems to be helping a bit, it's not helping nearly enough.

It's strange really when I came off antidepressants at 31 I felt ok for three years. This time round though if I stop antidepressants (even though they don't work that well anyway anymore) I feel absolutely horrible. I feel like I'm in some kind of hell.

I was thinking perhaps if I came off antidepressants for a year, just taking Zyprexa, that somehow my brain will revert back to normal and that the antidepressants will work again.

I really don't know what else to do.


Denise
