I also have a huge problem with med allergies. Have to be so careful because so may things can go wrong in me.
I think the only option is, to keep switching until you find a med that actually works and doesn't cause any huge side effects that you don't want.
There are lots of other meds to go through. Lofepramine (Lomont), Remeron and Trazodone. You should speak to your doc to see whats the next best med for you to try.
It's so irritating to have to go through all this hassle though, trying to find something that doesn't cause more problems than what you started with!

Sometimes, I feel that I should go and play with the thunder - then I get scared and run away.
