That's ok, Scott, I don't expect you to remember what meds I'm on. That would be a tall order, no?

Just fyi, I have been on the following for a while:

500 mg Serzone, at night
262.5 mg Effexor XR, in the morning
Adderall 10 mg in morning and midday and 5 mg late afternoon
12.5 mcg cytomel twice a day
50 mcg synthroid in the morning

I also take Glucophage XR for insulin resistance and Alesse 28 for hormone regulation (both of which have peripheral affects on mood)

I have been doing well, and thanks. It has been improving steadily over the past 15 months since getting the hypothyroid situation under control. But I especialy have had a boost in the past few months since putting some very distressing personal loose ends behind me, and feeling freer to really move on.

The effexor is not side-effect free for me, either, but definitely fine for now. I reduced the dosage sometime last year and raised the Serzone (in consultation with my pdoc, of course) and that helps somewhat. I still do notice the sweaty head sometimes, occasional difficulty sleeping, and tightness in my facial muscles. The last is the most bothersome, but liveable. If something better comes along, I would consider trying it out, but for now, I feel pretty darn good on this cocktail.
