Ah, live chat tonight? ;-) Do you subscribe to an instant messenging service?

> ops ... I didn't think about Anafranil ... but I told my pdoc I took it ... The last time was about ten days ago ... maybe there is some trace left in my body ;-)

19-37 hrs. half life according to SLS' chart.

So it's been roughly 6-12 half life periods so serum concentration could be as much as 1/64 maximum or as little as 1/4096.

> I don't know anything about pemoline but I think I have experienced some -what's the word ?- crash/down in the evening. not depression but nervousness & tiredness. I'm not sure Rit was the cause ... let's see what happens

It's possible. Methylphenidate has a fairly short half-life of 2.9 hours.

> the pdoc said also that my strong reaction to anafranil can be dued to the possibility that I am a slow metabolizer ...

Maybe, but I think it's strong serotonergic effects make for a more probable (though paradoxical) explanation.

> do you know if I can use benzos with rit ? what about alcohol ? I know, there should be a lot of posts about it, but you're my favourite counselor ;-)

I'm not sure. The Ritalin regulars on the board would field that better than I could. ;-)

> good luck with tyrosine and 5-htp. I hope in the future to try tyrosine. and to improve my English too ;-)

> what kind of job are you doing ?

I work in a nutrition store! :-) Employee discounts!! LOL
