You've added something to this post -- treatment resistant -- but don't say what you've tried before this.  As I said in your other post, this is an odd and potentially unsafe combination that you may have gotten to because your life is severely gone down downhill and you've tried about everything, but you don't say.

You are right my life is unbearable and severely gone downhill and have tried almost every think. Being a resistant case is so depressive and I don't know what to do about it anymore. I feel hopeless!!
