Now What

Posted by babak on January 6, 2003, at 6:35:37

I have just had to discontinue with ECT after six sessions, firstly because the side-effects were too much; I couldn't find my way back home and developed irregular heartbeat, which two weeks later still persists, and secondly because I am more depressed than before. This could be because of the side-effect or not knowing what to try next.

I have tried all the usual APs and at the moment
I am on max dosages of Venelafaxine and Mirtazapine. The only one I haven't tried is Lexapro. For some reason my doctor doesn't seem to keen on this medication, but I am desperate for something to give me hope, even if it is a long shot. Without it thoughts of suicide very quickly get hold me and that scares me out of my wits.
Has anyone heard of VNS (Vagus Nerve Stimulation)? If so does anyone know if there is a place in Europe where they carry out this treatment for depression?

I am not even sure why I am posting this message. I am just confused and desperate.
