Hi Scott,
I guess I wasnt clear on what Im currently taking. Im on Nardil 45, Ritalin 5mg, 1-3/day, Lithium 300 ER 1x/week and Seroquel 50@hs and DL-Phenylalanine, if youve heard of it. Its an amino acid that is a precursor of Dopamine and I think other neurotransmitters. Not sure but it is my miracle.

The Celexa-Wellbutrin-Adderall combo worked for maybe 2-3 years, not sure but I felt pretty good on it. Other than combo, most off my trials with ADs have been failures except maybe one or two others, but I dont think they helped too much. If they worked I would Have remembered them like the Celexa combo. Maybe Prozac and Paxil? Usually alone, not with anything else, although Im now thinking Lithium was added, Thyroid was added, its was too many drugs for too many years without much improvement. It was just wasted years and a life on hold for what seemed like 20 years. I really didnt have a good life as I tried to find something to help improve my dark negative thoughts.
Ive been on all 3 MAOs and Ensam. Only Nardil and Marplan worked. ECT in 2011 did my memory in very seriously. TMS was nothing to really be able to adequately assess, not a clear picture. IV Ketamine did something. I think it made me respond better to Nardil as my response had waned. But even on IV K by the end of 2 weeks my suicidality would start again.
I added DL Phenylalanine and my suicidality went away. Was it that or was it my brain synapses improved and my meds worked better? No clue. I dont date stop the DL-P.
Overall I think Im doing relatively well as long as Nardil continues to be available.
I am glad you are having some success on it too. I also gained weight but I have to live with some bad in order to not upset the tea cart. Adding another med like Metformin is not a risk to the formula Im willing to take.
Sorry so long. I dont know if more or less details helps others understand what I tried that may help them.
