When I first got depressed, it was mainly anxiety and insomnia (as well as a sense of utter hopelessness) which persisted for many months.

However, in retrospect, there were symptoms leading up to that which were complete loss of joy which was probably present for a year or two before before the anxiety / insomnia started.

For the past few years, my sleep / anxiety has been ok, but I just feel dead inside most of the day.

I did try lamotrigine, up to 50mg. I understand I should have gone higher. I didn't feel much of anything on 50mg. If anything, just more flat.

I did try parnate briefly around 2002. As mentioned, it did seem to provide a more comprehensive resolution of apathy. Unfortunately, one afternoon, by heart just began to race (without eating any offending foods). My psychiatrist got scared and yanked me off (the drug I mean).

At the moment, I am not seeing a psychiatrist. The wait list (in Canada) is 2+ years. My regular doctor is young and full of nonsense like deep-breathing recommendations.

So, it's not that I wouldn't benefit from a medication change, it's that I really don't have the options for medical care to see this happen.
