Cam -

Thank you so much for this. You really are an extraordinarily generous and helpful man. I agree with your list of limitations, particularly vis a vis the limited size and scope of the study and the sponsorship of Glaxco. But, as someone who has suffered from chronic derealization for most of my life, I'm willing to try anything. I'm hoping that the integrity of the Maudsley Hospital, the U. of London, and Yale trumps the drug company's participation. I know that the dp unit, staffed by these researchers, has treated over a hundred cases with lamictal, with what they claim is 60% success. Also, anecdotally, some dp sufferers on dpselfhelp.com report success with lamictal. I'm still at 75 mg, titrating slowly up to 250 mg., and alas, I so far haven't experienced any diminishing of dp symptoms. But I am less irritable, and I seem to be sleeping better. I'm hoping it at least potentiates the zoloft I'm on - there have been inklings of this. I'll still be living in a dream, but at least it will be a happy one.

If glutamate is only one excitatory amino acid, what are the others? Are there drugs to counteract them? Please don't go to any trouble to answer those questions, but if you know the answers off the top of your head, I'd be very interested.

Thanks again -
Jane
