Perfer an answer from someone with a deep understanding psychopharmacology. Ill start with the problem then bullet the history.
Problem: FATUIGUE resitant depression
#1: Current meds: 150 zoloft 1-3 clonazapam for anxiety
/assitance in getting to sleep #3ModAlert(I buy from india cause i cant afford american prices) I think it is provigil...this med has done the most for me.
#4: D3/calcium/b12 subq injections (post bariatric)/meta..oh hell...some kinda beta blocker/occasional trazadone, but usually once alseep i stay asleep. Sleep habits always erratic..currently more normalized hours, but hypersomnic.
Getting pretty desparate here. I HAVE A FABULOUS NURSEPRACTICIONER/PSYCHOLOGIST i have seen for >20years. Just looking for more answers. Signed up at a site to see if I might qualify for DBS study in the future.
There are no words in the English language that could describe how desparate I am for energy. I write here to just see if any one else has new ideas
Hx: Live long functional depression (retired-paramedic..worked allmy life) - Married 32 years - 2 great kids and 2 fab grandchildren...(rule out bi polar would ya :PP )
9 years ago my mother chose to shoot herself in the head...very effective
8 years ago i tried to die twice on the table 2ndary to the bariataric surgery..(dying of blood loss if you KNOW what is going on is not a smooth exit, btw)
7 years ago huge insult to my ego and how i view myself (long story)
Before these events I lead a BLESSED live ... no one ever died..and nothing ever bad happened.
Childhood: Only child - Parents remained married until my mother's suicide. Abused? Perhaps verbally, but i know how memories can twist around on themselves so i dont trust every thing i remember. Over all was included in all familiy activities and never "neglected". IQ = 130 ...dont know what else would help you..
ANY IDEAS?? any cutting edge...oooh predilection to Vicodin (i stay away unless omeone has ONE or TWO to give me..i don't "drug seek", and also HATE alcohol..so not an issue there :PP....Smoke, quit for 15 years..picked it back up...dumb...It will go someday too..just not enough energy to fight that now...hmm again need CUTTING EDGE, NEW IDEA AND GOD DAMN I NEED SOME ENERGY I have great ideas/plans/but no follow through or energy to act.
