Thank you, James.

Yes: Remeron 30mg at night, Wellbutrin 100 mg in the morning. I first tried Zoloft and then Effexor XR, but couldn't tolerate either. Remeron (45 mg) helped from March 98 till October 98, when lithuim had to be added. Got off the lithium (thank God) in spring (March or April, I think). Things got bad again in June/July and Wellbutrin was added. Eventually Remeron was cut last summer from 45mg to 30 mg, which is not so sedating/more tolerable.

I talked to my doctor a LOT yesterday. It was only 45 minutes, but it felt like two hours' worth. He saw the change, but he also helped me put some things in perspective, and I'm feeling tired but not so strung out as the previous few days. I think I'm OK, or OK enough to be here ... more stable and not afraid of myself. Wellbutrin dose will be increased. We agreed to leave the Remeron as is.

Thank you all so very much for helping me through the last few days!
