My symptoms are primarily cognitive as well... at least they start off that way, until I make myself feel even worse by beating myself for not getting things, not making connections, being half-frozen in social situations...

These symptoms seem to come down on me all at once, often preceded by a week or so of feeling really good. Prozac will resolve most of it for me after three or four months, but often I get cocky and apathetic (a strange -- but I imagine typical around here -- combination) on the stuff, and, forgetting that any amount of stress will hurl me back into depression without it, see if I can do the unmedicated thing...

So yeah. I don't have any answers right now except to say that I identify with your problems (apart from your adventures on antipsychotics), and I'm looking for an answer myself... I felt the best I ever did on my first combo, zoloft + lithium... unfortunately the side effects made me worthless sexually. Anyway. First I have to find a doctor in this new state I've been neglecting my mental health in for months...

I hope I get over my own apathy & stupidity to post again soon.
