Attempting med washout after decades of crazymeds.. So DONE... with SSRIs, SNRIs, tricyclics, A/Ps, mood stabilizers, been cycling through 2nd & 3rd trials of same damn meds I've already tried... Ritalin officially pooped out on me and I can't get out of bed in the morning. They helped with affective symptoms of depression, but at what cost? I've been (barely) existing in this anhedonic blah wasteland for YEARS. I want to just rip off the band-aid... I'm stable, but can't continue like this.. I feel drained 24/7, doesn't matter what activity. I lack pleasure/motivation/drive to do anything but lay around staring at the wall. My cognition is mush, memory poor, I can't multitask.... I cannot do anything productive (work/maintain job), engage in leisure stuff (sex, read books, enjoy music, socialize) or creative tasks... It all makes me TIRED... Is this my baseline? I'm afraid my brain is permanently disabled from longterm psych meds.. Blood tests, checkups indicate I'm in perfect health. I expect to have sh&tty withdrawals for awhile, but once dust settles - if I do go back on any psych med I want to try an MAOI... I know they are old school (with diet restrictions) but I've read they're proven 100x more effective than SSRIs & SNRIs (particularly for anhedonia, they hit dopamine + serotonin + epinephrine) Can anyone shed light as to WHY no one here mentions/or is taking MAOIs? Pdoc said there aren't many being produced bc they are considered "old" and never prescribed? I've heard loads of testimonials that the no-Tyramine diet is really NO BIG DEAL... So I skip red wine (gives me awful migraines) and stinky old goat cheese (hate it anyway!) Any feedback/ thoughts? I just want to function like a normal human being! Many say Parnate is the only thing that helped lifelong, suicidal depression (after taking all other meds & ECT...) https://www.drugs.com/comments/tranylcypromine/parnate-for-depression.html?sort_reviews=most_helpful
