> Glad to know my thoughts have been helpful for some, less so about those I have irritated with information they didn't really want to hear. I hope for a happy and healthy 1999 for all. My practice is mostly emergency work, so I think I have more "down time" than other docs. That's why I am so annoyingly available. :)

Who has been irritated? I can't imagine since you are so very careful in what you say. Even when we rant and rave about the drive by prescription pad tx, you never down the MD's. You never insult anyone's intelligence or intuition, and always give a broad spectrum of suggestions. Please don't stop. I wish all the MD's out there were like you. Perhaps they become hardened to mental pain after being overwhelmed RE managed care. Isn't it discouraging that people can connect with mental health care for YEARS and still not have adequate care and evaluation? I wish my MD was as annoyingly available!

QUESTION: in another post you mentioned Effexor for anxiety with depression. How is it different from Remeron? I tried Effexor in a very tiny dose for about 5 days. It was truely terrible--the same type of thing as the SSRI's--racy heart, absolutely no sleep and heightened vigilance. (but I also did not have the klonopin script then either). Note: It's been quite a while since I took the klonopin. Still have some here but haven't needed it since the adjustment after taking Remeron. Remeron didn't really kick in for sleep for the good sleep I have now--for a few weeks.

I hope peace and contentment and creative energy find their homes near you...........
