heres an extract from dr bobs tips page:

Subject: Bromocriptine for SSRI poop out

I have had a very similar experience. This is now spoken about in many psychopharm conferences as "poop out." In my experience it sometimes happens as late as 3 years into an SSRI (typically Prozac, since it's been around the longest), in as many as 20% of patients.

What is to be done? There is talk among "poop out" veterans of adding bromocriptine since there is speculation that this might be a dopaminergic depletion phenomenon. People have said this helps, but I haven't used it yet myself


did you not poop out on prozac? maybe low dose prozac with a dopaminergic could be a good strategy. I think it is worse when withdrawaing from the drug. How was the aripiprazole, that is supposed to increase dopamine, did you feel any benefit? cheers
