S.S.R.I. tolerance and other stuff.

Posted by zarathustra on January 7, 2002, at 21:39:56

I have been on divalproex-sodium for 2 months now. Iam currently at 2000mgs a day, and have noticed nothing (except ten pounds). Should I be questioning the 'current' diagnosis, or suggesting a different AED?
I want to try lithium, but no doctor will let me, they say that the side effect profile is bad: I can handle side effects if the damn depression would lift!

I have tried all of the ssri (paxil and zoloft used to work excellently years ago) wellbutrin, effexor, serzone, menerix.

Maybe Nardil or Parnate? I am ready to give up, my pdoc has got it in his little head that I am bipolar; I think not.

I just need my memory back, and some emotion or 'color' in my life, I only seem to ever find that colour when I am drinking (not often) or hung over.

Why did Paxil and Zoloft fail to work after restarting them months later? They changed my life I felt sooo good, so alive, I had goals I had energy, enthusiasum, I felt good about myself I held my head up high.......
but, I stopped them naively due to the sexual side effects and the thought that I was 'cured'. I would gladly make the trade off now!
The last time I tried Paxil, I was up to 60mgs a day for five months: no response, not even loss of sex drive. Did my brain become tolerant to them?

Anyone in the know, please respond.
