> I've never been on Anafranil, but I've heard some horrible things regarding side effects. Not sure I want to give it a try. I have looked into Zyprexa for the increase in dopamine effect, but my doctor seemed to believe that it doesn't increase dopamine. My doctor said that it is a dopamine blocker, so it wouldn't compensate for the loss of dopamine that the SSRI's can cause.
What are your thoughts on this? If I did go this route, would Zyprexa take the place of Trazadone and BuSpar? What does should I take? 2.5 mgs. or 5 mgs.? How bad is the weight gain caused by Zyprexa?
>I've also thought about replacing the BuSpar that I take with one of the Beta-blockers: either Pindolol or Lopressor. I thought these would help the anxiety and headaches I get from the SSRI's as well as potentiating their effects. Do you have any suggestions as to which is better? and Do you think this is a good idea?
>The one thing that scares me about your recommendation of taking Fenfluramine is the few reports I've seen saying that this drug decreases the amount of serotonin that your brain can produce over the long term. Is this a substantiated belief or just a miscellaneous report? I've also seen a similar report regarding long term use of Ritalin.
