just as an FYI, in the last 1.5 years i've been on emsam, effexor, abilify, geodon, nortriptyine, clomipramine, luvox, lithium, rilutek, lamotrigine, deplin, memantine, parnate, nardil....but my current cocktail over the past 4 weeks has lifted me out of the pit and substantially reduced my obsessive rumination and pain over the past. importantly, i'm getting a response without being pushed into a mixed state, which all SSRIs and SNRIs have done.
i'm not at 100% by any means, but 70% is much better than 10%
what is working for me:
zyprexa 5mg <--as stated in previous post, I believe this is key
bupropion 600mg (as aplenzin)
lunesta 2mg (tapering off)
i also take a variety of supplaments, including 2000mg of l-tryptophan at night.
i hope you feel better.
