  1. Second post on crazy boards. In short I have tried many different classes of Ad's with little help. I am copying my maoi proposal to my pdoc below. I apologize for length, this proposal should cover everything. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have been on Zoloft, Cymbalta, Strattera, Wellbutrin, remeron, fetzima, viibryd, deplin, Lamictal, Abilify, and Nuvigil with moderate to little help. Some boosts and stabilization here and there I will give credit for. Particularly Zoloft for anxiety, Cymbalta for uplifting feeling, Stra
  2. Does anyone have suggestions for great add-on meds (even natural options) for the chronic dysthymia & anhedonia that remain after Major depression episodes have subsided? Trying another round of Abilify now and if this doesn't work, will go back to a stimulant (any stim suggestions?) I feel like I'm running out of options that work for this condition without giving me worse/intolerable side effects than the condition itself. I am completely mired in this, can't move forward, and it's debilitating. Unfortunately, after trying about 30 meds, and making many positive healthy lifestyle ch
  3. I'm struggling very hard this last month. I was diagnosed with dysthymia two years ago, and it's been something that I'm always fighting off as best I can. My life just fell apart recently, as my wife left me after a month of marriage, and took our son with her. She left me once before, 3 years ago, and the circumstances are the same. She is the most loving person I've met, but filled with guilt and anxiety, and during these break ups, her affect flattened, she loses all positive feelings for me, and sometimes there's this bubbling rage I can see under her mask-like face. Last time she left, s
  4. Hey to all, It's said that dysthymia is dealt with at the same rate as depression. I've been searching through a bunch of posts and it seems early onset is popular. Those who have longlasting depression or dysthymic symptoms, do you feel like you need a diagnosis for dysthymia? Or do you just run with it? I don't intend to really do anything like self-medicate without a proper Dx, it's more for my piece of mind. I'm currently on Wellbutrin for a bout of depression and my family doctor wants to wait. I suppose I'm impatient but a monumental part of my validation comes from my family
  5. Hello, my name is Simone. I've checked out this place a few times and I finally decided to make an account. I got out of inpatient a few months ago and I'm doing pretty good, but I do need support from time to time to keep me on track. This website seemed friendly and has a bit of a twisted sense of humor, which is awesome by me. I'm a member of some other support sites, but they are for specific problems and I needed a place that was more general because, like most people, I have more than one problem. I am diagnosed with Major Depression, Dysthymia, and Personality Disorder NOS. I struggle w
  6. Ok, so I just got a prescription filled for 20 mg of Citraprolam, also known as Celexa. I've been seeing a psychologist who diagnosed me with depression, particularly dysthymic disorder. I also have generalized anxiety and social phobia. I would just like to know what to expect when I start taking the meds. I know that it takes a month or so for it to really start working and that all SSRIs are different for different people. Please just tell me about the changes you experienced and also about side effects, particularly if you have taken or are taking Celexa. Thanks
  7. I'm looking for some advice. I've had a lot of experience with different antidepressants, and almost no success. I'm getting pretty tired of the whole trial-and-error process, and I'm not terribly confident in my doc's ability to prescribe the right thing, especially considering some special circumstances. Here's my history. I have been diagnosed with social anxiety and dysthymia. I've had both as long as I can remember. My first experience with taking antidepressants was Paxil when I was 16. This actually seemed to work well, cleared the anxiety and depression right up. I eventually tapere
