> In November of last year a miracle happened which was the augmentation of Prozac with Naltrexone..... However, nobody has been able to give me a hint as to why this combination should work. Can anyone speculate about this? Wayne

OK big guess coming up! There is cross - talk between Opiate systems and Noradrenergic systems - it MAY be (wild guess) that naltrexone operating through the opiate system somehow activates noradrenergic transmission, lifting mood. There you are, speculation!
