I once switched to Cymbalta + Risperdal out of frustration, after futilely trying for a long time to recapture a response I had once to amitriptyline + sulpiride. When I switched back to the amitrip/sulpiride I responded. I had tried for a long time with different dosing of amitrip/sulpiride but it seemed totally coming off them and switching to something else was required

Have you considered switching to another regime for a few weeks - say Nardil/nortriptyline/lithium - and then switching back to Parnate/desipramine/Lamictal/Abilify? Maybe this would achieve a sort of reset of your systems and enable you to recapture the response you once had with Parnate/desipramine. Pure uninformed speculation here, but these meds mechanisms we don't really understand. It's not a straightforward dosing application. Why do people not respond again after stopping an effective med the first time, for instance.

You've helped so many people here - I wish you all success in your quest for recovery.
