Xanax it is, then. I hope it goes well for you. I should have tossed in my vote for klonopin. But the benzo/TCA (nortriptyline) combo is working fairly well for me. Going off zoloft felt like, well, it's hard to describe. SSRIs made me feel a number of ways, sometimes even quite well, but there was always this sense like, well, like I was walking through neck-deep water. There was some resistance to any sort of movement or action or decision. Even now that I've been off SSRIs for a month now (after about a 5-6 week taper off zoloft), it's still hard to describe. All I know is that even while on zoloft, once I settled into being on a TCA things got much better for me. They still have some way to go, but I'm stable and highly functioning.

Your pdoc sounds like mine ... I was eager to try his suggestion of low doses of Wellbutrin to augment, but he still wants to see me settle into life without SSRIs for another month. One variable at a time.

... which reminds me: I had mentioned that I thought too much change had been happening for me to give a good evaluation for NADH as an energy-boosting supplement ... between med changes and getting my apnea properly addressed. Well, I've been off of NADH (mostly through carelessness but, after a few missed days, intentionally) for about a week now and my ass is dragging! Again, could be a number of factors, but I'm going to give the stuff another shot in January, after my next pdoc session and (hopefully) several weeks after I finally get a cpap machine for my apnea. Stay tuned, sports fans.

Hang in there, JohnL. All of us on cocktails know how disrupting dropping and/or adding a med can be. Ride it out and let it settle down ... here's hoping you need none of the former and get all of the latter.
