Indeed, I have used Cylert and Fastin for depressed people who couldn't tolerate the SSRI's due to jitteriness and who did not get jittery with these two.

You might want to call Dr. Longpre and get a feel for him and whether you feel comfortable talking to him before deciding between him and Dr. Altman. Since Ms. Alberson is busy, you might not be able to see her often enough to keep the momentum going (although to tell the truth, even monthly sessions still work, but you are wanting, I think, to kind of go ahead and get it over with).

You have to request an appeal from your doctor to the insurance company stating that other medications do not work for you and that they cause intolerable side effects. It has to state that Remeron is effective for you with few to no side effects and that it is your doctor's medical opinion that Remeron is medically necessary to treat your depression and he requests that the insurance company cover the cost of the medication, less the usual and customary copay for other medications. (And you are correct about the cost. Remeron is $77 per month for #30 30 mg tablets and Prozac is $84 per month for #30 20 mg capsules.)
