Iatrogenic is just the term I used since I feel my problems were caused by treatment. TRD isn't really a diagnosis officially but my pdoc mentioned TDR and bipolar II since anhedonia is a component of that, which is why i'm trying lamictal and abilify.

I tried ritalin which did nothing and neither did wellbutrin. I don't think I respond very well to dopaminergic drugs. Abilify feels like caffeine to me, not really adding or subtracting to my mood.

I would love to try an NRI, but reboxetine isn't available in the US and my pdoc isn't too crazy about TCAs.

I would like to try mirt+ an SNRI, or a TCA like desipramine, or nortriptyline + a smidgen of prozac.

I'm not surprised about reboxetine, I found pristiq made me feel more reconnected to my surroundings in a way that SSRIs couldn't. I think norepineprhine is important, its just that I need my own balance since I'm so sensitive to increases in serotonin.

Maybe I should do what you said and just deal with life as it is now. But I've been struggling for a long time and not made progress in my life. Worst comes to worst I just stay on low dose prozac, which increases interest enough to go to school and study.


Post-SSRI problems: iatrogenic anhedonia, memory and concentration problems, sexual dysfunction.

Location:USA

Currently taking 300mg Lamictal,45mg mirtazapine, and 2 mg abilify.
