Thanks for your reply. I did not make myself totally clear, "texting" back and forth in this manner, leaves a lot to be desired. I still have questions concerning "tardive dysphoria
," as I'm already aware of the information you gave in your intial response (although, I have never heard the term "pro-depressant"). I will try to give more details, in the hope that you can give more information about a possible path forward for me. I was MIS-diagnosed several years ago, and placed on several anti-depressants (tri-cyclic and SSRI's over a period of 12 years, I began having "depressive" symptoms almost immediately, but the symptoms became particularly worse at the 6 year period, but neither I, nor the doctors were aware that the medications were actually making me ill, as they just kept changing the medications, adding to them, and/or increasing the dosage), and although, I did not know at the time, the anti-depressants were actually making me exhibit symptoms of clinical depression
, in other words, the medications were causing me to be ill. I am under the understanding that "tardive dysphoria" is actually a relatively new hypothesis, or "newer diagnosis?" Is that correct? Is "tardive dysphoria" in the DSM as a diagnosis? After I stopped taking the medications (8 years ago), I have continued to have difficulties that are the same as "tardive dysphoria." I would like to know if there are other treatments, other than discontinuing the medications, again, I did that 8 years ago, under my doctor's supervision, and with his agreement. So, what other information is available about this condition, and possible treatments that would reverse the symptoms of "tardive dysphoria?" (which I whole heartedly am CERTAIN were caused by anti-depressant medications) I cannot find any information on the internet about "tardive dysphoria," and I also contacted XXXXXXX quite a few months ago, in an effort to get information, and they were of NO help, and had no real information. In fact, the people I spoke with at XXXXXXX were not even familiar with the term "tardive dysphoria," they had never even heard of it. Please send whatever information you can about what I've addressed in this reply to you.
