Since we are going through drugs old and new, have you tried Nardil or Parnate?

Which drug(s) have you tried that produced the best antidepressant effect for you?

Combining Parnate with lithium is an old treatment strategy. I felt an improvement within 6 hours upon my first dose of lithium when it was added to an ongoing trial of Parnate. Unfortunately, the improvement was insufficient to rationalize continuing with the Parnate. I kept lithium onboard for many years with the hope that it would help reduce the risk of my contracting Alzheimer's Disease. Fortunately, I was still taking lithium when I added Nardil. I tried discontinuing lithium as an experiment to see if my libido was being reduced by it. Well, I was surprised that I relapsed into such a severe depression within 48 hours.

I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
