> You are definitely not alone, Enigma. I too am in the same situation, except haven't tried ECT, did have transcranial magnetic stimulation though, which didn't help. And doctors ARE clueless, they think AD's work better than they do because most of the patients they don't work for either go to another doctor or give up on doctors altogether. It never occurs to them to wonder, how is so and so doing, it's out of sight, out of mind. I'm sure there are exceptions, but they are few, most are quite glad if their treatment resistant patients don't come back. Cecilia

I agree 100%. I've had one doctor almost flat out say that he wouldn't treat me. He tried to work around saying the exact words, probably for legal reasons. I've had other gladly suggest other doctors for me to see. There was one doctor that actually made me so mad because he almost lost me my disability and wouldn't listen to my symptoms. I almost knocked him out.

Funny, after telling him that I just had a year long battle going on/off short term then long term disability with my current (now ex) employer, doing everything in my power to KEEP my job, and THEY were the ones who booted me at the end (either take termination or long term dis. WITH benefits and pay). Wow, tough choice.. not. He actually suggested that I go back to work!!! I almost jumped out the window, taking him with me of course.

These people make over $100 an hour for what again?

I have other doctor horror stories, hell, too many....
