Opinion only, Jon, but from science sources -

Exogenous means it comes from outside sources. An example would be someone who was fine till they lost their wife they loved dearly. Their grief didn't resolve or heal over time but worsened into long lasting depression. Or it may be a depression that happens as a result of an illness like Lyme's disease.

Endogenous means it's something that's internal -a 'chemical inbalance' or inherited disorder like BP. Something like stress or another factor may set off the disorder (or depression) but the tendency for it to surface is there & likely to be triggered in normal life.

What you have, I couldn't hazard a guess, Jon. I'd have to know you personally & your background & family. But I *CAN* assure you that you that the probability of feeling better on Nardil is very, very good. It's still one of the most effective ADs there are. Just about everyone who's used it says it works good.

The time I stopped Luvox I went downhill quickly & hard. Felt murderous almost & adding Manerix made me worse. Stopping an AD leaves most of us very miserable till something else is added. Hang on.
