Has this happened to anybody?

Posted by jhj on November 13, 2010, at 5:50:56


I am suffering from what doctor thinks is dysthymia, GAD, Social Phobia, Avoidant Personality Disorder though i think my depression is very severe and remains that way 24x7. Though i started treatment for last 7 years i have been facing these problems ever since early childhood. I have tried all SSRIs, SNRIs, TCAs, Most benzos, Bupropion, Mirtazapine and few others. Practically i have tried all meds except MAOIs (I have tried Moclobemide) since Nardil and Parnate are not available in my country India. I have had 6 bilateral ECTs last year. However, none of the above treatments (Drugs, ECT, CBT) helped me or improved my symptoms even by 1%.

I wanted to actually know whether has it happened to anybody here that despite trying all the drugs, depression and anxiety do not improve at all? I am not talking about drugs stop working after some time or side effects giving more trouble than benefit. I am asking about not improving at all even for 1 minute even by 1%.

In addition to all these problems, my memory is very bad. This is not due to ECTs, it has always been like that. Sorry for my poor English.
