And then there were 4

Apparantly, according to my consultant, we have exhausted the possibilities of 3 drugs at once, and have therefore moved onto 4. These being 1g Lithium, 75mg Lamotrigine, 20mg Clomipramine and 20mg Prozac (Fluoxetine).
Reducing the dose of Clomipramine has certainly helped a lot with the side effects. I can think a lot clearer and the constipation is much more managable. However, the addition of the Prozac has led to almost daily headaches. I expected them, as they happened last time, and I’m hoping they will diminish as my body gets used to the drug.
On a more positive note, I am being refered to the Affective Disorders Group at the Maudsley Hospital in London. They are world experts in treating treatment resitant depression, so I hope that they may be able to help me beat this illness.
