Thanks for all the thoughts. My pdoc's raionale was that you get intensive therapy and it's therapeutic to spend some time with other people in similar circumstances. I decided to hold off and to go back on the only med that has ever helped me, fluoxetine and go off the nortriptyline I was on. I considered going to another TCA (anafranil) but opted to avoid further experimentation for the time being. Hopefully I will improve in a few weeks and be able to get back to some level of functioning and then can try and fight upwards from there. Maybe lithium augmentation on the prozac is worth a shot. I've learned experimenting with full 6+ week trials of meds to seek remission can be quite risky though I started this slide on fluoxetine and may have spiraled if I hadn't been switched (to effexor) anyway. I guess there is no way of knowing, it's so hard to tease out what's meds and what's life. With regards to insurance, I don't know what would have happened with regards to coverage, etc. I am staying with family so I'm not alone.
