> Hey, how about this? Take my paxil or zoloft for three weeks, then stop for two weeks until starting MAOI? This would be 5 week prozac washout period. . .But, is the combination of other drugs in my system adding to an increased washout period?

it sounds good to me

> Boy, that prozac is something. I feel high, giddy. . .this med gives me mild mania- I had forgotten about that ( I took this many years ago). If I remember correctly, It does this for awhile then CRASHES and makes me feel worse than ever. The other SSRI's make me feel zoned out and tired/lazy.

perhaps if you are a natural bipolar (not necessarily medication induced) you could take a mood stabilizer to keep turn the mania into euthymia, and then stay that way

.... hmmmm... how do you know if it's the other SSRIs making you feel tired/lazy or the depression itself?

> Interesting. Do any of the MSOI's have these same side effects? Apathy? Mania (or mild mania for me)? Racing thoughts?

... parnate caused some h-mania early on, then i got rid of that with some gabapentin ... it wasn't as strong as with paxil ... or effexor..
... i have never had apathy on an AD ...

i don't know the difference between racing thoughts and mania... thought they were the same thing

> Would eithr one work well for anxiety/agitation? How about for motivation? (I have trouble with all three areas)

... i find parnate works for anxiety and motivation... (it has been studied for anergic depression)... though i might need a stimulant for ADD sometime in the future... have to wait and see what parnate is like at full effect
