Those posts you've responded to are quite old. Since then I've added memantine to the adderall/selegiline/amisulpride along with klonopin at night. I take these med.s for dysthymia whose symptoms include low energy, low motivation, anhedonia, and low self esteem with constant negative thoughts. I also have comormid social aviodant personality (loosely related to social anxiety) where the world is viewed as a hostile place and I therefore want to withdraw from it. My current combo has eliminated all my symptoms.
No I don't have schizophrenia, though amisulpride is known mainly as neuroleptic for schizophrenia. However I take amisulpride at low doses. At these doses it has a different, most simply put, opposite mode of action than the higher doses taken for schizophrenia. Study after study has shown amisulpride to be effective for many in taking away dysthymia when used at low doses. Many people who occassion this board have given first hand accounts of it being effective for their dysthymia and/or social anxiety.
