I'm glad that this works for you and you do better.
What's scary though is the thought that somebody with depression might require such a cocktail to get better. I mean I know that my doc would NEVER give me such a cocktail but what if I needed it to get better?
My ex-pdoc basically dropped me telling me he can't help me anymore after I tried a few drugs. He was a real jerk and not very motivated. He did not even offer a MAOI or a TCA. He acted like they don't even exist.

What also sucks is HOW shall I decide what to add or what to try next? I mean there are so many possibilites. I dont know how to figure this out.
And my pdoc is very busy and always has his whole waiting room full with patients. When I see him there really is no time to discuss very much. I can't go to him and then talk about theories for half an hour. I wish I could. When I go to him then basically there's only enough time to say that the old drug didn't work and then quickly come up with a new drug and usually I am the one who makes a suggestion and he simply agrees but when he has to come up with an own suggestion he just pulls something out of his hat and this is even worse than me coming up with a suggestion so basically I have to decide on my own what to do and this also makes me feel left alone but it's still better than having a doctor dictate you what to try next.

I also wasted way too much time with sh*tty pdocs. I wish I had more time to experiment with more drug combos. But I'm faxing my final exams at the university and this means that I needed to become functionable as soon as possible. I do not have years left to experiment with stuff. I should already have found something which works long time ago but havent been able to.
I also cannot do risky experiments with drugs in a phase where I know I have to learn and function.

How much T3 do you take?
And do you have your ft3 and ft4 levels supervised so that you dont become hyperthyroid?

And how long do antipsychotics usually take to work? Do you also have to give them 6-8 weeks like SSRIs or do you notice if they work much sooner? If the effect started kicking in fast then I could try low dose Abilify for example and if it doesn't work get off it.
But I also dont know if Abilify would mix well with stimulants cause Abilify also affects dopamine. It could as well ruin the effect of stimulants.
