Monotherapy vs. Polytherapy for Depression?

Posted by simcha on August 18, 2010, at 17:26:47

Having recently come out of remission and on the search for new treatment I heard something from my current pdoc that poly-drug therapy for depression is now something that is frowned upon and can complicate depression more than help it? I've also read around here and some people claim that some pdocs will only do monotherapy because it's more effective?

I just wonder because I've been on many drugs at the same time for depression for years and years. The only monotherpay drug that worked for me was EffexorXR with the intolerable side effect of anorgasmia to the point of not being able to have an orgasm. It did wonders for my depression, but then again it was my first treatment and I was coming out of the worst depressive episode I've ever had so any improvement would have felt like a miracle.

I just ask because perhaps I'm missing something...
