> Has your doctor considered that you might have bipolar disorder? People with bipolar disorder are often very sensitive to antidepressants in the ways you describe. If this is true, you will need to develop a different strategy to treat it, and, for the moment, avoid serotonergic antidepressants and other serotonergic substances (5-HTP and St. John's Wort).

Thanks Scott. I have been tested for thyroid and adrenal function (morning/late afternoon cortisone or was it cortisol?). I do not believe I am bipolar. I don't get "manic" - no high energy states, no euphoria, no uninhibited behaviour (although I do get angry easily these days, but that feels more like a fight/flight response associated with the depression and anxiety).

I had a Naturopathic test years ago that indicated my liver Phase 1 Detox P450 enzyme system was not functioning properly. I have speculated with Doctors since on whether that may in part explain my hypersensitivity, I'm not clearing things normally. I could not tolerate hormones, even "natural" forms, when I went through menopause either. It's very frustrating.
