My doctor is getting frustrated (nowhere near as much as I am of course) that I am staying put at a flattened level with moderate depression that won't abate. We have given most everything a shot so he thought about taking me off ADs and trying the selegiline patch. He suggested raising the Remeron to 60mgs from 45mgs as he has see some patients with improvement but who knows. I wouldn't imagine it would make that much of a difference. We haven't tried serzone or trazodone yet so that is something I might ask him about.

I hope that you are pleasantly surprised by Remeron. Personally, I don't think people should give up on Remeron until they reach 60 mg/day, unless they feel worse or develop intolerable side effects. Some people need 90 mg/day.

What were your experiences with Effexor and Cymbalta?

What about Wellbutrin?

Your lamotrigine dosage is quite high. Does it affect your memory?

It is too bad that a doctor should allow his frustration to become visible to the patient. You should be afforded the same patience from your doctor as you require from yourself to tolerate the pain of your illness as you move through drug trials.

I hope you feel better soon.
