GRRRRRRRR! blueberry

Thanks, Blueberry. I just read something -- did you post the link to it? My memory is nearly gone these days -- about the possibility that the fatigue and amotivation from SSRIs being because they cause an imbalance in the various neurotransmitters. That would fit in with what you suggest about too much being not a good thing.

And I think, periodically, about trying another drug, something that might work better -- but then I get into a rut about weight gain (and other side effects, but I have to admit it's a toss up about which bothers me more: weight gain or sedation). I go through a circle of thinking: Sorry, I tried to write it and got so anxious I just can't do it. It's basically as simple as "I lack sanity on some subjects." I know that some of that is the depression itself. If I wasn't still mildly to moderately depressed, I might see a rosier view, but as it is, I look back on my days on ADs that "worked," and all I remember is being fat, constipated, anorgasmic, and half asleep. If I could remember it being better, in some way, maybe it would be different. {sigh}

And all of that was really just to tell you that I really don't think I could take zyprexa, because of the weight gain, and I had a very, very brief trial of Remeron some time ago, and it was pretty terrible. I got that rage thing going -- even had to tell my husband to keep himself and the cats AWAY from me, because I felt so out of control. I was afraid I would hurt one of them, because I really felt just crazy.

Thanks for your input, though. I guess we'll see what my pdoc says when I see her next...
