CTV report about breakthrough in bipolar treatment

Posted by Tori on October 6, 2000, at 12:45:47

(I originally posted this to but am going to drop that NG - find this board more helpful)

Anybody else see this?

There was a report last night on CTV or CBC, can't remember which one, that
reported a legitimate scientific study that found 'major success' in the
treatment of bipolar affective disorder by using certain minerals/vitamins
.... the patients interviewed had a remarkable response rate - but they
didn't say what pills they were!! d'oh! I had my friggin pen and paper
ready! It seems, if I can remember correctly, that it's now being funded
and assisted by the CDN government for further research. I pray they find
the solution .........

Sorry, but Canada kicks ass!!!!!!!!

Two weeks on Parnate, doing pretty darn good at 20 mg. Actually slept 8
hours last night, only woke up once, and only had to take 30 mg restoril as
opposed to 90 sometimes at night plus 4 mg clonazepam just to get to sleep.
No suicidal thoughts after three days on it; bit more energy but nothing
significant *sigh* but have definitely noticed an increased interest in life

Former chronic nightmares about my mom's death have ceased (she died three
years ago on 11/25 from pancreatic cancer at the age of 40, I was 23 -
gruesome nightmares that I guess would classify as PTSD as I didn't react
emotionally at the time of her illness, only after she died, and only in my
dreams where I would respond in terror to the real events that happened to

Returned to work on Monday after 4 days on it (remarkable); cognitive
functions seem to be improving; I'm not forgetting names or words anymore;
computer technical skills are back up and running (cool).

Can't wait for my man to come home from his hunting trip on Sunday and
lavish him with affection to see if the "side effects" of celexa and
wellbutrin are gone!!! (Don't come 'a knocking if this trailer's a
rockin'........ )

I just hope this lasts ......
