Heh Mitch. How are you?

Re: the 27 mg. - my pdoc and I discussed this. I had been up to 25 mg. before on Ritalin and hadn't noticed a big difference between 20 and 25, so he felt that 36 would be an o.k. jump. I'm o.k. with it because I would have had to wait for yet another script if we went to 27 first.

First day, so I'll let you all know about the possible extension of benefits into the evening tomorrow. He didn't feel it would affect that and mentioned the same thing Chris did as a solution - taking 5 mg at, say, about 4:00. He said no later than that, though.

My sleep patterns are still wacky, so I imagine he wants me to try it at this level for a little while before adding any at the end of the day. Of course, I am getting impatient and want it all fixed now!!! :)

I have not tried Effexor.

Re: "Serzone settled me down, but I was very confused (like trazodone). Wellbutrin makes me very panicky and grouchy."

Boy, both of those affect me the same way. I find it fascinating that we have quite a few similarities because of our sex and age difference.

Re: "mood SAMENESS"

That would be a goal, IF, that anxiety/jitteriness can be controlled. So again, it seems as if we react similarly here.

Perhaps a small amount of something else can control that? It couldn't be sedating for me. How many meds does it take? Ug. ;0

Also, after I am on 36 mg of Concerta for a few days, I will try your suggestion of taking the Depakote at even more spaced out intervals - maybe 500 mg in the morning, 500 in early afternoon, 1000 at night.

And my mood chart/journal is a big goal...
