> I'm already starting to feel some effects. I feel, I don't know...like I've had a couple glasses of wine, I think. Of course it's too early to tell what the real effects of this drug will be. From what I understand from reading John L's posts, I should know that in about four days. Let's hope I'm not reporting back to you all from the depths of hell! Quite frankly, I do think I will be devasted if this drug does not work as anticipated.

Update # 2: It has now been 24 hours since my first 25mg dose of amisulpride. I took my second dose this morning at 8:00 AM. The feelings of intoxication and dizziness have now dissapated giving way to a feeling of sedation. I feel "over-tired"! It is that uncomfortable feeling when your tired and you want to sleep but you cannot! Totally different from the kind of knock out sleepiness that I have experienced from most AD's where I wouldn't be able to stay awake to save my soul. Other than that, I see no other changes. Mood and motivation remain unchanged. I hope this tired yet wired feeling will soon fade. I am tired despite the fact that in addition to the amisulpride, I have been taking adrafinil 300mg/bid for the past week. I think I may need a stronger stimulant. Who knows????? I'll keep you posted.
Any information on the sedating effect on amisulpride would be appreciated. Does it fade with time?
To Lynne, Nat and Leonardo and to all my fellow Babblers, thankyou for your continued encouragement and good wishes.
