> My anxiety these days is usually very low and has always been very secondary compared to my melancholic depression but much of this low anxiety might be due to how dulled and cognitively impaired i am right now.

That's a very insightful connection you make between cognitive impairment and the anxiety that can emerge as a result of being hypofunctional in a busy world. It is difficult not to become anxious when one is asked to perform at a level beyond their capabilities.

I wonder if using low-dose lithium treatment would help in combination with antidepressants. Adding lithium to Parnate had been a favorite strategy 30 years ago. Of course, adding it to TCAs was a common treatment. Lithium might act as a buffer against excessive NE and GLU activity via receptor modulation produced by inhibiting second messenger cascades.
