I'll be interested to follow your progress. It will be an opportunity to learn something. If you fail to respond to gabapentin and feel worse with flumazenil, you might need to look at glutamate. Have you tried Lamictal? (I apologize if you have already addressed this question). If Lamictal is at all helpful, you might find that combining it with minocycline will produce a more robust antidepressant response. You might even consider adding to these two drugs a tricyclic like desipramine.

Your brain will make for an interesting proving ground. I hope your hunch regarding flumazenil is correct. However, if it isn't, perhaps doing some brainstorming will help discover a treatment that works for you.

It is true that you and your doctor know better your treatment history than we do. I hope you don't mind answering the same questions repeatedly from different people. It can only work in your favor. I still don't have the mental energy to read entire threads.
