What do you mean by hyperactivity ? If you mean the ADHD-kind, swtiching from thing to thing without concluding anything, yes, I have that problem too (when my mood is good). I don't really know at the moment if this is soft bipolar II or the ADHD thing (or both).

I think that when my energy level is good I resemble more to the overfocused kind, while otherwise I resemble more to the inhattentive.
Once again I didn't manage to understand if overfocusing problems are dued to some kind of OCD or to the ADHD in itself.

> Then on Anafranil, for the first several weeks, the inattention is replaced by overfocus and a smattering of symptoms from social phobia and oppositional-defiant disorder? But then the overfocus goes away after several weeks, but not the SP/ODD stuff? And you gain weight?

Yes, something like this. I could add something else: after some week on Anafranil I exhibited also OCD disturbs (for a very short period) like
rituals. This period is very short-lasting (I suppose it begins just before the OCD effect of Anafranil kicks in). I remember I had this problems also the time I took Prozac for 6 months. As I told you I have not OCD disturbs when I'm not on meds but I had OCD disturbs when I was a child. So, there may be some "OCD" in me.

My actual self diagnosis is: ADHD inattentive type, mild BP II, OCD tendencies.

I talk about BP II primarily because of my nervousness on meds. In fact my non-meds mood switches seem to me co-related with ambient responses.

Pardon me for not answering the rest of the mail but I gotta go. I'm going to be out of town for a couple of days. I didn't get tyrosine yet, I'm a little shy in asking, it's not easy to find it here if you're not a bodybuilder : )

Anyway I started Ginko to see what happened. Let's say it works : o I'm ready to run a marathon ... so, it seems that there is not sugar in those strange capsules ...

Did you tried EPA-DHA ?
