Treatment add-on options

Posted by chrismeurer on October 8, 2017, at 16:49:28

Good day everybody, my first post here. I've been treating anxiety/depression for over 2.5 years now. I feel that the depression is always more noticeable when i'm calm; when i'm anxious it's like there's no space for the depression and I end up feeling mainly the anxiety. Have tried a lot of drugs and other therapies. Right now i'm taking 150 mg/d clomipramine, 15 mg/d buspirone, 10 mg/d abilify and 80 mg/d propranolol. I live in Brazil and would like to try a MAOI, but never met a doctor willing to prescribe it.
Right now the anxiety appears to be under control, so i'm noticing the depressive symptoms more - anhedonia, lack of energy, lack of motivation and difficult concentrating, as well as suicide thoughts. Yes i'm seeing a psychiatrist.
Would like to know some thoughts and opinions about add-ons and other treatment options so I can go to my appointment tomorrow with some suggestions. I'm also having neurofeedback sessions.

Thank you.

how are you feeling on all of this stuff? Are you currently on all of these medications? Well maybe an MAOI combined with what you take now will kill you. Is that your goal?
