Hello again. I cannot understand why your doctor does not offer more options than you have conveyed. After looking more closely at your meds, I am suspicious that since you are taking a minimum of 3 meds which are all involved in the regulation of Serotonin and that your last hospitalization, which you describe as ending in hospital for reasons you do not know, that you possibly did not, in fact, have a depressive episode but Serotonin Syndrome, which mimics a depressive episode in every way. You do not describe your symptoms, but if they were serious enough for you to go to the hospital I suspect Serotonin Syndrome. I recommend you read Peter Breggin MD books regarding how many psychiatric meds can make one sicker and more depressed. Also, you don't mention if you are also in therapy with a person licensed to treat depressive illnesses. If you look at the research on treating depression with medication alone, it has a very large failure rate. I would never have been able to recover without both and I don't know of anyone else who has been able to only take medication and experience a positive outcome. Whether our depression is genetically linked or the result of trauma, or both, it is still largely within our power to learn ways to change our thinking when we can, to accept what has happened to us without blame or self-pity, and to make creative use of our experiences. Not that I hear any blame or self-pity coming from you. Again, my best wishes for your future happiness.
