> > >I am going to add estradiol (proscribed by my pdoc) when I get around to filling the presciption, either tomorrow or Sunday. Then when I see my gyn in August, she will add progesterone, definitely natural progesterone.

Good luck with the estrodiol. Stahl is high on estrogen therapy during perimenopausal transitions.


> > > The big question will come when my waiting period is over and I have to decide whether to go back on nardil, try parnate, or just keep going with the oxycontin.

I was just reading an article on anxiety that said that the MAOs are 60-85% effective with anxiety and, surprisingly, said that a their clinic at least, the preference was Parnate over Nardil. www.anxietynetwork.com/pdmed.html This is encouraging to me because the sexual dysfunction and weight gain has me shying away from Nardil from now. It's great that you did not have these side effects.


> > >I'm leaning toward nardil because I don't really want to try something new (and deal with new side effects), and I'm worried with the oxy alone, if I become habituated to it, my pdoc will not be willing to raise it and I'll be in trouble. So far though, I am still getting the full effect, but it's only been six weeks.

Jeez, how long is your washout? If you have a med that works (sort of), I understand your reluctance to try something completely new.


> > > I read your post about your reaction to valium. That sounds really strange. Were you able to figure anything out about it. You were doing okay on the valium until today, right? By the way, I find valium much more potent and helpful for use as a prn than klonopin. If I'm really anxious, I can take 3 mg of klonopin and feel nothing. 5-10mg of valium always kicks in for me, but it does make me more tired than klonopin.

It's interesting how we all respond differently to meds. No, I haven't figured out what's going on, and I think I will take it today and see how I do. I hate to just jump on and off the train without giving the med it's full shot at working, but then again, I am not in a great place so I may have to bail prematurely. We'll see--thanx for your concern.
