Do you know of any new meds for depression.  My doc has about exhausted what he knows.  Next thing to try he say is EST or what ever they call it.  It's shock treatment, your unconcious at the time.  I guess they reboot your brain.
FM, IBS- Effexor XR 300 mg, malic acid, magnesium, omega 3-6-9, vitamin D 2000, calcium citrate w mag, 1500, morphine, ridlin, womens multi vitamin; Between work and chores at home too tired to go to gym. Try to do stretches in my office at work. Still hopeful I might be well enough to ride again but had to sell my horses. Haven't been scuba diving in 4 years

The newest thing that I am aware of is pristiq. I am taking it. There might be newer meds, but I am not familiar with them. What all have you tried? Have you seen a psychiatrist? Or a family doc?

I hope that you find what works for you. We have a member that has been on ect. He will be on tonight, as he is in Australia. He can give you some feedback on it.

Not on any meds right now.  I have had a lot of success with large daily doses of Vitamin C and B-complex with extra thiamine (b1) and niacin (b3).
