I hate to sound trite but have you had a real physical CBC and lab tests done? My psychiatrist of 7 years has never requested any blood work to make sure I'm physically sound. I have gone from doctor to doctor, finally demanding a full blood panel of anything they could think of. Results were low ferritin levels, low bilirubin?, MTHFR mutation, low progesterone levels (49 yr old female). Anything that alters our biochemical natural rhythm can mess us up. Fatigue especially, the extreme kind, can be a symptom of something else. I have found that when we suffer from depression for so long we forget to focus on the rest of our body. It took over a year of taking Vyvanse, Adderall just to see it lose its punch, to realize that the fatigue was not only caused by depression. I had to have an iv iron transfusion, and I am now eating healthier, laying of the almost daily glass of wine and taking Deplin among other supplements. And now, I can go a couple of days without taking Vyvanse. To me this is such an improvement from a month ago when I literally thought I was dying. Depression is one of the worst diseases in the world because it sucks your soul, I say lets make depression's life miserable by having an optimally healthy body and making it a very inhospitable place to visit. No GMO's, no gluten (which has been touted as "the tobacco" of the last 50 years)no alcohol, and least amount of prescription drugs possible. And as for ECT, if all else fails, why the hell not.
