Hi Mimi,

Thanks for your response. I had some treatments in in 1995 and was taking Prozac. I continued on it afterwards but relapsed in a couple of weeks. Regarding the relapse thing, Columbia University put a paper out in 2001 which you can find on PUBMED. Dr. Sackheim is the main author. They studied all the meds for relapse and found nortriptyline + LI to be superior to all others. Now when I looked up CLINICALTRIALS.COM, I found that they are doing a major study at several hospitals testing the combo. for relapse and also testing maintenance ECTs. The results aren't in yet so I always ask ECT people what they are taking for relapse.

I had a "follow up" question for you. Were you treatment resistant before your treatments? Also, was you depression acute and short term, or long term and chronic?
