That's too bad you have to quit what works for you, but it sounds like it's only making your anxiety worse.

I suffer only mildly from anxiety (in counjunction with my depression). So I'm wondering if I might find a low dose that might work for me. Couple of questions, if you don't mind:

Have you had success on Wellbutrin or any of the other stims? The only one I've been able to tolerate without irritability/tension has been methylphenidate.

Also, can I inquire as to what dosage of deprenyl you were taking?

I swear, if I can't find something to replace the smoking I think I'm just going to keep it up for the rest of my life. It's the only thing that seems to work for anhedonia!!!

> It's great for anhedonia, drive, and mood. But yes, the anxiety is worse. My primary doctor refuses to work with me on it and tells me to consult a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist I saw got very angry with me for taking it and practically threw me out. I'm trying to find another psychiatrist and not having much luck at all.
