> First, Julian- I do hope that the medication change will help. It must be very difficult both for you and for your wife.
> I just discovered this chatroom and this thread couldn't be more timely for me. I've been on combo of parnate, lamictal and respirdal for a number of months and after trials of many many medications which preceeded that it seemed that we had finally found a combination that worked. But then over the past months things started going downhill. It's frightening for me since when things deteriorate there is no way of knowing whether it is a backslide or a free fall. My doctor is excellent and is comfortable with trying combinations of meds. For now he's having me stop the parnate so that he can start me on something else.
> It would be helpful to hear from any of you about how to manage the discouragement and the uncertainty. Thanks- Ruth


I understand what you are going through.
Wayne R went through the same thing. He said his life was saved by adding Naltrexone together with his antidepressent. This seemed to inhance the antidepressent's effects. We will be trying that drug if all other ideas do not work.

We too have a good MD but he can't know everything. This chatroom is great for helping you and your doctor to get other opinions.

Good Luck to you
