Default Antidepressant micro-doses

Hello,

Does anyone else get relief from very small antidepressant doses (to decrease the side effects)? I take just .01 mg desipramine every day and my doctors don't know what to think of me. I feel very alone. Thanks.

I take 15mg.s of Paxil, which is a subclinical dose. I don't think it helps me at all, but it didn't at higher doses, either.

While technically a neuroleptic, flupentixol is a antidepressant in low dosages (between 0.5 and 1 mg) and to an extent, is effective for anxiety too.

Normal dosages are between 20-40 mg in depot form, which last up to a month.
