oh robbie that doesn't sound good
i hope you find a solution soon. i don't know about drugs. i know about nutrition, and counselling.
when i had my attack i set up a team and a counsellor was one of the group. the counselling service was available through an employee assistance plan at a part time job of mine. when i called, i made sure to specify i wanted someone who was used to dealing with patients who had just received a nasty diagnosis. so now i see a lady every two weeks. i think she is great, and the process is great too. since then, i read a study that showed counselling really helped people combat the depression common to ms patients. i believe it.
regarding nutrition, ms patients are typically low on vitamin D. vit D has been shown to be useful in the treatment of SAD (seasonal ?affected? disorder) and therefore supplementation above the normal recommended daily may be helpful not only for immune system function, but for mood. vitamin D has also been shown to be preventative for alzheimer's so there is definitely some brain chemistry going on with this substance. i don't know where you live and i am not sure how long it takes people to benefit from sun exposure in spring (there is a lag from input to high serum values), but just after winter everyone living in areas with less UVB exposure will be at the low end of their annual vitamin D cycle. particularly those who don't get out in the sun. i have read SCADS on vitamin D and also have been advised by my naturopathic doctor, who has ms, to take 4000 IU cholecalciferol per day. the current recommended daily supplementation of vitamin D provides sufficient levels for bone health but not for immune system function and perhaps not for mood.
other mood vitamins include a combo of B6 and B12. so a good b-complex should also be helpful. chin up robbie!
