One last thing.

(I hope you have been reading every word of my posts to you).

If you allow your brain three months to stabilize, not only will you be more responsive to treatment, I think you will be far less likely to incur side effects, especially psychiatric (mental) side effects. Most importantly, this includes severe brain-fog and the anxiety or stress of feeling "wired". I think you will be much less apt to react to so many *different* drugs the same way.

It might take you awhile to internalize these beliefs and treatment strategies if you continue to consider them with an open mind. If you make no changes internally today, maybe you will a year from now. Getting well a year from now is better than going to your grave having never experienced normal consciousness. Doing what I suggested is really a no-brainer.

I have had the good fortune of being able to pick the brains of accomplished psychiatrists / psychopharmacologist over the course of 4 decades. This includes research clinicians from Columbia, NYU, Harvard, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Most of them would make the same suggestions to you that I have. I swallowed my first pill in the late Spring of 1982.

Anyway, what you have been doing hasn't produced satisfactory results. That's a lot of years of failure. It's time for you to try something very different.

I will repeat what I said before:

If you never give a treatment at least a month to produce results, you might have wasted years without having effectively tried a single drug. That's heavy-duty.

Of course, it might be that what you have been doing is exactly the optimal treatment strategy that will get you well. Your approach might have a better chance of working than anything and everything that I suggested to you over the last 3 days.

I can't offer you certainty. I'm just not smart enough.
