The emotional part of me masks the logical part and continues to have hope. I probably would not continue to live without it. I must therefore suppress and ignore my logic in order to survive.

Scott,
I don't know your med history as well as most of the others, and i probably won't come up with anything that you haven't already tried, but i'd still like to try to "help" if possible.
Have you been on Remeron? High dose Remeron 115mgs. helped me. Also a combo of Remeron and Paxil, both high dose help me for quite awhile. Also, how about Lyrica? For me, this was much more potent than neurontin. Mirapex was also helpful for awhile.
Before i started Parnate, i read that this formula below can be very effective for TR depression- Pindolol, Nefazodone and Tryptophan. 7.5 mg a day of pindolol, 300 mg. of Nefazodone, and 1 gram of Tryptophan. Pindolol stays the same for 20 weeks, gradually increase the nefazodone to 450 mgs. a day, and Tryptophan to 8 mgs. a day. This combo is believed to increase serotonin release and availability in TR patients.

Hang in there Scott, I know there is a medication/cocktail that will help you...you deserve it Scott, you've suffered much too long.
