My husband has suffered from major depression for 7 years. He has tried a variety of medications and has been hospitalized 3 times. He has received three rounds of ect, the last being in july of this year. While suicidal thoughts are gone, the depression still lingers. He is currently taking 1200 mg of lithium and 200 mg. Of lamictal. We are considering getting a second opinion from one of the major hospitals i.E. Johns hopkins, mass. General, columbia-ny. Does anyone have any helpful advice?
Poor guy.He's on some massive meds.A second opinion is good.If you think you need one,that's reason enough in my book.I hope your husband has some resolution to his problem.Good luck to both of you.He's very fortunate to have a supportive spouse,it must be tough for you as well.Patty
