Dealing with Depression

Hi - this is my first time to post something - I have dealt with depression most of my life - been on every anti-depressant known to man kind and nothing has really helped me - my psych did a genetic swab on me which shows which drugs are working and which ones aren't - it shows if the drugs are being absorbed by your body - I was on Wellbutrin - Celexa and Remron and none of them were being absorbed which means none of them were working - I have been weaned off all these drugs and have been put on Pristique - I have been on it for 4 days and mentally I feel better - most of my days were spent in bed with a pillow over my head - today I have been up doing things - did laundry that I had not done in over a month - I have not gone back to my bed. Only thing is I'm very nauseous and dizzy - I'm hoping these side effects will go away soon - otherwise I'm very hopeful this drug will work. Anyone battling anxiety and panic attacks - I'm on Neurontin 300mg 3 times a day and hydroxine 3 times a day and it really helps - I know the genetic swab is fairly new and hasn't been available and thank God my insurance paid for it - so for anyone whose drugs have not worked for you - you might look into it and see if it is available to you - Good luck to all of you out there fighting depression - it is an awful thing to have to deal with.
