This is said to be true with CFS as well. Hmm.

Nizoral is strange stuff. The Rx for it's onlabel use is commonly for 1 tab. . .and is said to to go on working for days, if not a week.

Did Cece say that?! It is not! Besides, it all depends on what the docs you've been exposed to think.

Hm. Sounds way familiar. . like ten days ago, in my Mixed States.

*And* there is a *major* poop-out after any kind of mania. I see it like taking cocaine: it feels so good, so right, because all your chemicals are being released at once. . which means there ain't *nothing* left when it's done. A ghastly state to which even depression is perferable.

Really? Can anybody say more?
