I am in Honolulu. Keppra is a newer anti-epileptic. There are NO studies that show it effective as far as I know. Some Pdocs are using it for bipolar as mood stabilizer and mood enhancer (maybe other things like sleep-not sure). So like Neurontin, soon they will figure out if it does any good or not. My Pdoc is pretty assured that it works. I think it is a good mood stabilizer...Keppra and Lamictal work for me...time will tell.

Hmmmm...I wonder if that tricyclic you mentioned would work for me. My Pdoc seems very smart and I think he really studies all the latest information. He knows I had problems with Wellbutrin (dopamine issues I suppose) and I liked Zoloft but after I started Wellbutrin I quit both (maybe Zoloft didn't poop out and the Wellbutrin is what messed me up--I got very aggressive). He knows Selegilene's effect on dopamine and other things (and knows how Wellbutrin affected me) so he must know what he is doing. I think he thinks it is a healthier drug than SSRI's or Tricylcics (in terms of what it does to brain...he said a study showed it made rats live longer...I think he knows I will appreciate that it is a "smart drug" whatever that means (he knows I have trouble concentrating and thinking clearly in addition to my depression).

Heheheheh. I hate having to take drugs. Oh well. I also hate to go to psychologist, but I am doing it anyway (he is nice--it is just hard for me to open up)...

Aloha ya'll! (I'm a southerner transplanted to Hawaii)
