Persephone Posted December 21, 2009 Share Posted December 21, 2009 I know I have it in my signature, talked it about it on my blog, and alluded to it in a few of my posts - but I guess I'm feeling needy and nervous. I'm seeing my pdoc tomorrow to get a prescription for MAOIs (don't know which one yet). I have been on at least one med from every class of modern ADs in various combinations, with and without mood stabilizers. All of them either haven't worked very well or caused intolerable side effects. My pdoc thinks TCAs would not be a good fit for me. I'm going for the real deal, because EMSAM is so expensive and sounds kind of lame since you still have to follow the dietary restrictions above the lowest dose. The lowest dose of anything never works for me. The AD washout has really sucked but is a good reminder of how much I need to be on ADs. I've been an irritable, agitated wreck. I wasn't doing great before, but I had worked myself up to a low-level functionality. Now I've totally fallen apart again mainly because I just don't care about my disintigrating life. My family's kind of pissed at me Any words of advice? I did have have my "Last Supper" of Thai food and Singha (a type of Thai beer) tonight. Oh well - food restrictions don't bother me so much. I've lost so much of my life due to depression, getting a fraction of it back would be well worth the sacrifice. I know MAOIs are just another type of AD and they help a lot of people. But it all just seems so intense. I've been so anxious - but then again I've been dealing with Cymbalta withdrawal and the return of the symptoms which put me on ADs to begin with. I guess I just want to whine a bit. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
