> I'm not talking about people taking ecstasy every weekend at the local rave -- though that's the reason it's schedule 1. I'm talking about limited clinical use to augment therapy just as pindolol augments Prozac.

Yes, I know what you're talking about, although I really don't see *either* use as being morally wrong.

> When I say morality, I mean the government passing along research that supports its view and withholding research that doesn't, or even preventing research in the first place.

Now *that's* morally wrong. God I hate the War on Some Drugs!

> I'm sorry, I just get upset when moral prejudice strongarms block scientific discovery.

Nothing to be sorry about!

> And remember that many of these folks would like to cast all psych meds in to the sea -- ' and by God, you should just pull yourself up by your bootstraps!'

The government (NIDA etc.), or just random anti-med people?

> Despite all the bliss, I think the side effects of SSRIs cause many to drop those too. I can't deal with higher doses of Luvox but use a lower dose and pindolol.

How is pindolol for you? I'm using it with Marplan - had a fast response, now have really low BP and insomnia! (Like, even more insomnia than I had before. Which is a lot.)

> OK, with emphasis on no case being clear to this particular researcher.

We'd have to comb through the literature for ourselves to make a real decision, of course.

> If I'd only know you were from Boston!

I'm not just from Boston...I went to MIT!
