I said to my pdoc that lithium did not work for me in the past and ECT neither.
Then she talked with her colleagues about my case of depression and recommended lithium or ECT?
I chose lithium but it was just as awful as last time. Chemical death.
I stopped lithium and now i only have one choice and that is going back on MAO-inhibitor.
Sometimes the pdocs disregard the patient’s experiences .It is us who takes the drugs, the treatment, and it is us who knows the effect on our own bodies. They should listen to us.
