Thank you *so* very much for your time and your answers!

You have come to the same conclusions that my Doctor and I have both landed on. I am taking Cranberry capsules everyday, and I do drink a lot of water, so the UTI's are probably just an untimely coincidence (I'm in the right age group for these things to start popping up).

And I'm very pleased with your advice regarding the Gingko Biloba (I'm looking forward to some cognitive/memory benefits).

1.) Regarding augmenting with SAM-e, any recommended initial dosage?

2.) I am under some financial strain regarding my meds, will SAM-e break the bank but be worth a trial anyway?

What I do find funny is the fact that I haven't built any tolerance to Adderall after all this time (actually lowered it over a year ago) nor to the Klonopin, which seems to be every Doctor's nightmare when writing out those Benzo's scripts. My Amitriptyline has to be played with (moved up and down) for better results, as well as the Prozac, and Neurontin.

3.) Have you seen or treated any major "Discontinuation" problems when merely trying to cut down on the daily dosage of Serzone?

We've also been playing with the timing of many of the meds, like taking 25 mgs. of Ami in the afternoon, or taking all my Neurontin spaced out over the day (which really works quite well).

4.) Do those sort of strategies conventionally work for fast metabolizing, highly tolerant, or atypical responders?

I am concerned with weight gain also, and trying to figure out which med is tricking me into feeling hungry all the time. I think the Amitriptyline started it, but as soon as that leveled out, we added more meds and the weight race has been ongoing ever since. I have heard that SAM-e can be of some benefit in this situation as well.

Again, Thank You All for your Time!!!
