Chris,

Thanks for all the info! I may take your suggestion and up the Prozac.

Peter

IT still didn't help with the suicidal thoughts so I started on Zyprexa (after a few failed trials with things like Remeron and Risperdal). The Z helped clear up my thinking but I still had the anhedonia/apathy problem. After quite a few trials I stumbled on Mirapex which has been great. I'm almost back to what I would call normal. I still have lost interest in some things but they are coming back into my life.

> As far as the switch from Zyprexa to Geodon I'm not 100% sure why but both my pdoc andI thought that it would be a good match for my type of depression. I had no problem with the switch and haven't noticed a big difference betweeen the two. I think some of the change had to do with the weight gain and the possibility of TD with long term Zyprexa use. Either way it has worked out.
