Need treatment resistant deppression pro in MA/NH

Posted by Enigma on August 14, 2010, at 9:06:11

Please keep this in this forum Dr. Bod/admin because it primarily has to do with the knowledge and dispensing of drugs.

Well, I've been through the gamut of docs in the area and either
1) They don't take Medicare
2) They are not experts in treatment resistant depression
3) They are not accepting new patients
4) They are booked out 2-4 months (which I don't have the time to wait)

I need Selegeline, my doctor won't prescribe it too me because he says he's not familiar with it - as if there was any more of a stupid excuse in the world.. (it's called research - look it UP)

I tried Mass General, Mclain, called many others, seen many others in New Hampshire and all docs seem to give up on me to refer me somewhere else.

If you know anyone who will prescribe me Selegeline, (as opposed to Nardil which is failing), please let me know. Any old shrink will NOT do. They have to be treatment resistant specialists and be familiar will ALL MAOI's for starters.

I was going to apply for a DBS study, but I'm "scared" to be totally honest. I guess I have no choice though. Tried about 30 drugs over the past 15-17 years.
First bipolar II, now it's all depression. Also, I have your "environmental/ situational" depression (normal depression everyone gets, time to time, when grieving, gf/bf breakup, etc.
Marriage is dead now and I need a woman, more than I can understand why. Dating sites were a waste, and I have no friends who want to "go out" anymore.

Except if I go with my brother from Manchester NH to Boston and meet a women there. He does, and I'm 10x better looking that he is :). Boston to Manchester, NH are like two different animals when it comes to night-life. I was thinking of moving, but no money, and I can't leave me kids. They are the only happiness I have left. Yep, too much info.

Please let me know. Already seen Dr. Patil in Bedford, NH, docs and Catholic Med Center in Manch, Dr. Learner in Manch, Dr. Santora in Nashua NH, and a few others. Tried ECT twice with no results, 10 sessions each, bilateral, at 2 different hospitals. Concord, and Nashua NH.

Please help.
