Your answers are not wishy-washy at all, Cam, and I really appreciate your time and trouble. You are right that my Dr. is a total gem, as she practices at home by herself and she knows she is one of the last of a dying breed, and the current trends in mental health care management are not impressive to her (or to me.)

If you can stand one last question: the possible faulty subset of serotonin receptor genes that you mentioned to me and Gilbert... do you know if this is more often associated with bipolar depression than with unipolar, and do you know whether panic disorder is more often associated with bipolor or unipolar? It came as a surprise to me several years ago to learn that panic disorder and depression are frequently comorbid, and I had always thought that, going further, bipolar disorder was a totally different animal than depression/panic disorder. Is bipolar disorder just depression with a side order of mania thrown in for kicks? My guess is that the biological origin of the disorders would be totally different, and I am wondering also if the panic disorder follows one more than the other. I know that my father, a definite bipolar, suffered from panic attacks but I don't think he was aware of the name for them or aware that they were a specific "condition." All this has changed so much in the last several decades. I know I am annoyingly curious, but if you understand the genetic or biological origins or similarities/differences between these three conditions I would appreciate picking your brain just a little more.

And yes (LOL) I meant .125, not 12.5. I am very curious as to how some people can tolerate many milligrams of that stuff, or NEED it for their seizures, yet .5 mg will have me passed out under the table.
