i have never felt better than well. in fact, i have never felt 'well', except possibibly some time before the age of five.

i think 'poop out' has a lot to do with the fact that antidepressants essentially treat one imbalance with another imbalance. Delgado's studies of amine depletion showed that if you deplete an ordinary person of amines, depression is not induced, but if you deplete someone on fluoxetine of 5HT, they will suffer a relapse, and if you deplete someone on desipramine of NE, they will also suffer a relapse. If you deplete someone on fluoxetine of NE, they will not suffer a relapse. This shows that drugs act on the amine system in a way that elevates mood, but it is the antidepressant creating an effect unrelated to whatever caused the depression in the first place. There might be two imbalances created (one from the depression and one from the AD) and two imbalances does not necessarily equal balance.

This is the pitfall of treatment that is merely symptomatic.
