Why do all Meds make me feel worse?

Posted by Mtom on September 27, 2016, at 11:51:09

I posted separately that I've been trying very low dose Trazodone to help with sleep issues. I'm also experiencing long term depression, but I cannot tolerate antidepressants, prescription or Supplements I've tried and even these very low doses of Trazodone are making me feel awful the next day. Others tried for depression include Tri-Cyclics (long ago), Zoloft, St John's Wort and 5HTP. Started with very tiny doses of 5HTP hoping to titrate up, but side-effects kicked in quickly. I start to feel foggy-almost fluey, an agitated type of anxiety, worsening depression and mood swings, often stomach upset. I am "not" Bipolar - the "swings" are from lower-moderate levels of Anxiety/Depression to suddenly more intense periods. I never feel euphoric or energetic.

Many years ago an MD I was seeing who had also studied Naturopathy and Homeopathy had me do a bunch of tests. One indicated that my Liver Phase 1 detox P450 enzymes were not functioning properly. I've wondered if that explains my low tolerance/extreme hypersensitivity. Or maybe my depression is being caused by issues other than the neurotransmitters affected by these meds.

I would love to hear experiences and ideas. I've also had a number of sessions with 2 Psychologists and 2 Naturopaths as well as my family Doctor.
