> I thought you had already been on effexor?

Yes, but I had combined it with only 75mg of nortriptyline. Since then, we finally established that I need 150mg, as I am a rapid metabolizer. Even at 75mg of Effexor, I experienced a partial, persistent response.

> ...effexor and wellbutrin without much effect but then added milnacipran to the mix and resulted in remission.

Wow. I know how much you like milnacipran. I guess you recall that I have tried this drug, but not with Effexor. I will keep this in mind.

> Anyway, effexor vs pristiq, I don't know. I just wish nardil had been more robust. Thought I would mention the milnacipran combo thing since you are already familiar with that med. Hang in there because many people here need you.

Thanks BB. I appreciate it.

By the way, my doctor wants me to try Viibryd next. Of course, I will need to wait 2 weeks after my last dose of Nardil to start it. With a little luck, I won't need to revisit Effexor.
