> Hi Anna:
> By "paradoxic", I simply meant that the more you take, the less sedating it is- seems counterintuitive, but holds true for most who take it. Thus, unlike a benzo, if the sedation effect wears off (as it did for me), you cannot increase the sedation by increasing the dose. Hope this helps.

Thanks for clearing that up. I`ve also heard that the higher the dosage, the less likely you are to gain weight. Another paradox? >

I`m from the UK, where specialists in my kind of depression - i.e. `treatment resistant depression`, or `difficult to treat depression`, as it is more positively known, are very thin on the ground. The one I visited, who gave me my diagnosis (chronic severe double depression*), is one of two that I am aware of in this country. It will be him that`ll be treating me when I eventually go into hospital (about 3/4 weeks now).

Why do you ask? > >

Anyway, thanks for replying,


p.s. I keep coming across this `BTW`. What does it mean? > >

* my psychiatrist had never heard of `double depression` before, and had to look up `Dysthymia` (the on-going, long-term depression that is ever present, and I have certainly had for most, if not all of my life). `Double depression` is Dysthymia + severe major episode (for me, the past 6/7 years)
