@angiegk, I hear your pain, and encourage you to search for an antidepressant that will work for you. I am taking Citalopram, which has been remarkably successful for my depression. I must go to a previous appointment, but I will check in with you more later. There is testing that can be done to determine what drugs and antidepressants will work for you. Medicare will pay for the tests. More later . . .

To Posters gailb and angiegk: I'm about to accept a referral to Psychiatry for resumption of psycotropic medication having been on Prozac and Wellbutrin for decades and discontinued them last year. WHAT IS THE PROPER NAME OF THE TEST TO DETERMINE WHAT ANTIDEPRESSANTS WILL WORK BEST FOR A PERSON. I don't want to waste time on "just trying out" a drug to see if it helps (I'm 78 years old and my time is short and precious). Thanking you for any help………….Jeanne.

GeneSight by Assurex. ( MTHFR). Be sure you get a doctor that takes it serious. Some of the doctors just blow it off.
