A question about drug tolerance
I become tolerant of meds quickly and upping the dose dose not help. Neither does stopping the drug for over a year and trying again. Can anything be done about this?

If these are necessary prescribed drugs, I'd talk to your doctor about it. He/She can try different regimes to improve drug availability. If its for recreational drugs or OTCs your probably SOL.

Thanks for the info. Although I have stopped responding to pain relievers and allergy meds this year after working fine for years, my main problem is prescription meds for depression. I've tried about a dozen and only had a positive response to three. Nardil and later Welbutrin each gave me a month of feeling much better. Almost overnight they stopped working. My latest drug was an anti-narcolepsy med modafinil added to seemingly useless Cybalta & Welbutrin. The first two days I had a lot more energy, then nothing. When my dose was doubled, I slept more than usual. My psychiatrist only has about two more ideas: dextroamphetamine or the Emsam patch. Did you mean to try different anti-depressants that might agree with my hepatic metabolism or is there something that I could take (or do) that could change my hepatic metabolism? Feel free to dumb down your response. A GED and ECT don't make for deep thinking.
