atypical depression - med advice...

Posted by fiftylager on February 1, 2006, at 15:03:33

Hi! Although I haven't been diagnosed I have an appt. next week. I have a history with depression (very severe at age 15). I am not so severe right now but go through periods where I will feel severe for a few days. I also suffer severe anxiety. I have done so much reading on the internet and I definitely believe I have atypical depression.

I sleep too much (can't go without a nap and have great difficulty getting out of bed), I overeat, I am scared of rejection and being abandoned, hate critism, suffer severe anxiety, I get so tired I feel I can't move.

Anyways, my conundrum is, the first line treatment is MAOI's. My doctor will not want to prescribe these and I don't know if I want to take them. I tried prozac as a teen and noticed no difference, except aggitation. I tried celexa and it was a horrid experience (1/2 a pill and I thought I was dying). I tried Wellbutrin which made me very light headed and spacey and slightly agitated. I couldn't function on it. Right now I'm on buspar which mildly helps the anxiety but not enough to justify the cost. Any advice out there?
