Hi Andy. That's quite a list of ADs you've tried (mine is similarly long). Nothing really pops out at me in terms of trends or types of meds that might be helpful, though the fact that some drugs helped after quitting is interesting. Was this a brief or long-lasting response? There is a phenomenon called (I think) "withdrawal positive rebound" which I have experienced occasionally, though it generally only lasts for a few days.

Good luck with raising the Lamictal... sounds like a reasonable choice.

Brief antidepressant responses to stimulants are fairly common, though it sounds like your response to Dexedrine is sustained. Excellent! Incidentally, I also find stimulants to have both calming AND anti-depressant effects simultaneously.

Regarding thrill sports - I imagine noradrenaline could also be involved with that as well as dopamine.

Don't know much about pergolide so I can't comment on that.
