No I didn't think you were doing that at all. Sorry if my response seemed abrupt, after I started writing I realized I was running late for an appointment and rushed it.

I think years ago I took one of the other meds you mentioned but didn't find it did anything. My current doctor hasn't suggested them (at least not recently, I think at one point she considered an antiepileptic like Lyrica, but we tossed it out as an option for reasons I don't remember). She doesn't seem to want to consider amitryptyline either, we haven't discussed why.

I saw one Pdoc last fall who was useless (and was with a major Teaching Hospital!). I knew more about meds and published research than he did. But getting referred to another, we'll see how that goes.

Going to try very low dose Remeron to start augmenting my low dose Escitalopram. I've been tapering Escitalopram for a while, may be part of the reason I've been feeling worse.

Thanks for your thoughts....
