  1. I found a great slideshow that explains what you were saying about mCPP, trazodone, and worsening depression. It made it very easy to understand. https://www.psychiatrictimes.com/depression/how-trazodone-can-cause-depression
  2. Quick update: I got my GeneSight test results in the mail yesterday, and it shows that I have genetic variants which mean I require a higher dose of both trazodone & Luvox (among others) to be effective. So I guess that explains everything. Oh yah, Seroquel too. Although, those prescriptions were all before I did the genetic test.
  3. Wow, thank you for your very detailed reply! I do take the hydroxyzine for anxiety, but not very often. The trazodone and Seroquel are both for sleep. I know the trazodone dose is high, but that's the only dose that helps (sometimes 300 helps, but usually I have to take the full 400). I find the combination of the two works really well for me and I don't feel too tired in the morning. I've taken z drugs, Ambien works great and Lunesta doesn't work at all. One stretch of time I took them well and didn't abuse them, but this last time I did abuse them and that was a nightmare, so we decided no m
  4. Thank you. I ended up sending the dr. a message online. I found out that they have been short-staffed at the desk and their phone system was done for a while. I figured it had to be something like that as I've never had problems getting through before. Well, I told him everything that was in the post and he did decide to switch me to Zoloft 50mg. I picked it up yesterday and get to start it today (I've decided to wait until evening). I was a little surprised he didn't have me do a wash-out period, but probably because it's such a low dose of Prozac it isn't necessary. I am excited and hop
  5. So, I was extremely depressed in January after tapering off all my meds on my own (stupid). My doctor put me back on Wellbutrin, and we decided to try Prozac as an SSRI. The Prozac wasn't kicking in and I learned about the GeneSight genetic test for antidepressants. I asked for and had the task done. They never sent me a copy of the results. After a month on the Prozac and no help, I also asked to go up from 300mg Wellbutrin XL to 450mg, and that seemed to help. I had an appointment mid-April and was mostly feeling better. He decided to keep me where I was at. I forgot to ask about the Ge
