From the name Atlantic Behavioral Therapy, it's hard to say whether the Cognitive component has been completely removed or whether it's just an easier name to have for a practice. The therapists I know for EMDR in MA would be on your list, I don't know anybody who has been recently added to that list.

Elizabeth corrected me about the fenfluramine. She is right. It is the fenfluramine that was removed from the market entirely, and phentermine remains. The phentermine is a good weight loss drug but does relatively little for depression (fenfluramine works on serotonin, phentermine does not), therefore it would be a hard sell to the insurance company. Since that has now been eliminated, I wonder about trying Wellbutrin (no weight gain, no serotonin, more energy) with the Remeron if the depression is returning. Samples are available as is an assistance program you may qualify for (the doctor would have the forms) since you are paying so much for the Remeron. Why don't you call the doctor or perhaps a nurse at the mental health center and see if samples of the Remeron are available (I think you were going to do this last week, but don't know what the results may have been)?
