Hi, Anthony-
I had a partial response to the Geodon at the beg. of April and added the Mirapex the end of May. It took a couple of months to deal with the sedation, but I was rewarded in mid-July with the best response I've had in years.I just hope it lasts, but consider it a gift for as long I can benefit. I still have symptoms, but much less than before.

I attribute this to the addition of Mirapex and ziprasidone (Geodon) to my regime of synthroid, dexedrine, lamotrigine and temazepam. (I had taken moclobemide for 3 1/2 years, and although it had helped, I stopped it because it wasn't potent enough).
> > After being on the Geodon for about a month, I started to notice that certain pleasures started coming back to me, like feeling love, or "hearing" music. I am now taking 60 mg. (20 three times a day) but had been up to 100 mg.
> Hi Chocoholic,
> I was wondering if you know for sure that regaining these emotions was due to the Geodon, or the Mirapex, or maybe the combo?
> The reason I ask, is that I had a similar response to Mirapex. I started feeling emotions I have been living without for years. This was a trial I did on my own, but I am considering asking my p-doc to prescibe mirapex, or possibly goedon. I am not bi-polar,just so you know.
