I suppose it might have been clearer to ask something like: "Do they have a seasonal pattern or do they occur in a cyclic fashion (more often than once annually)?". Apparently you "like" the sedative AD's. You probably ought to give Remeron a try. BarbaraCat (another poster here) has had very good success with Remeron and Lithium. Since your major d's recur, you might consider that kind of combination. You might find the Lithium "protects" you from recurrence, who knows? It might be worth a try. One thing for sure, getting a supply of lithium isn't going to break your bank account!

good luck,


Mitch
