Hi Bob.

> I didn't mean to imply that you don't give drugs adequate trial times.

I am becoming more and more concerned that people may not be fully exploring different drugs due to underdosing or inadequate trial duration. I guess I just wanted to make sure that the point was made.

> It's just that, these days for me, coming off of a drug and switching to another one has become an extremely harrowing and nasty experience. When you had mentioned all those APs and your take on them, I was suprised that you could have tried all of them already. Then again, I don't know when you started.

You can simply highlight and delete the unwanted text by holding down the shift key and moving the mouse or using the arrow keys. I like to compose my posts using a text editor or word processor. I'll highlight the whole post, and copy-and-paste to the word processor for editing. I'll then delete the entire message box and transfer the text from the word processor by copy-and-pasting.

Going on and off the atypical APs is generally easy to do when working with the low dosages that are used for augmenting antidepressants. I think you can get a good feel for what one of these drugs will do within two weeks of adding it to an existing regime.

JohnL has some great ideas on how to minimize the agony during the wait between drug trials. Some people find Ritalin helpful. It might be preferable to continue with a drug that has produced even marginal improvement and simply add the new drug to it, so long as they are not incompatable. You can taper one while increasing the other if necessary.
