Hi, Rose.

> Why does everything stop working?

Well, I wouldn't use the performance of any one drug to indicate your ultimate responsiveness to treatment. There are just too many permutations of drug combinations I doubt that you have explored.

What is it about Parnate 60 mg/day and Nardil 75 mg/day that prevents you from continuing treatment?

> Can you see why I have lost all hope?


I have come very close to losing all hope several times. I had come to the point of making plans for how best to protect my money so that it not be used for my burial. A person with a chronic and unremitting case of depression has sufficient reason to auto-euthanize themselves. Allow me to suggest that you are not there yet.

> How can I ever get better?

I have a bunch of ideas.

At the bottom of this post, I will list my previous reactions to drug monotherapy over the course of 40 years.

I NEVER responded adequately to any one drug. My two remissions (lasting more than a week) necessitated the combining of a MAOI with a tricyclic.

All four of the following drugs are necessary for my achieving remission:

Nardil - 90 mg/day
Nortriptyline - 100 mg/day
Lamictal - 300 mg/day
Lithium - 150-300 mg/day

- If I take away any one drug, I relapse.
- If I reduce the dosage of any one drug, I relapse.

This is the best example I can think of that demonstrates how exacting one must be in choosing drugs and their dosages.

I'm still unclear on something. What exactly did you do such that you lost your remission?

> But even they do not think those meds will get me to how I was before.

Their thinking is little more than a guess. Perhaps they guessed wrong.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
