I was DXed in 1963 but never treated until 1973. Had plenty of self medicating drug abuse in the past (can't honestly blame anyone but myself for the possible neuro. brain damage). Clean and dry since 1985. Admitted to various psyc. wards 10 times between 1973 and 2002.

Think I have taken nearly all the TCAs - had some improvement with Ludiomil for several years but nothing close to remission. Took all the MAOIs (including one from Europe on a test basis) but this goes back to the 70s, can't remember benefit, only side effects. I had almost complete remission from Prozac for the years 97/98, then poop out and have not had any response from serotonin ADs since that time. I have no start up symptoms and can cold turkey from high doses with no withdrawal. Had only one experience with an AP-Remeron = sever anxiety/panic attack at first dose increase - resolved with 1mg Klonopin. Wellbutrin at 400mg does nothing. Will have another try at Parnate. After that its ECT or the "big dirt nap".

Sorry to be so negative, promise to be more uplifting as we go......but always honest.

Good cheer
