There is a difference between cog/beh and beh therapy. Beh therapy doesn't involve looking at the automatic dysfunctional thoughts that perpetuate unwanted behaviors and an example would be some of the smoking cessation programs that involve snapping a rubberband against the wrist whenever there's an urge to smoke but don't look at why a person believes they need to smoke or why they believe they can't stop.

I'm not sure how different the 1996 and 1998 versions of Dr. Stahl's book are. Probably the 1998 version contains the newer medications that have been released since 1996.

Fenfluramine is still available, just not in the combo with Phentermine for weight loss. You won't be able to tell if the fenfluramine will cause jitteriness until you take it, but again, it hasn't had that effect with any of the other patients who have tried it, even when they had jitteriness from SSRI's. You will have to check I suppose with the insurance company as to whether they will cover it. Some companies cover meds for off label use.
