Hi Emme.

Thanks for responding.

> That's too bad. I wonder if memantine is going to turn out to be a bust as far as AD properties. The pdocs' ears pricked up when it became available, but no one on this site has had a clear and sustained response to it yet.

I make a pretty poor subject for evaluating the efficacy of antidepressant medications. That memantine produced any improvement at all is significant. For me, memantine was an unsuccessful bunt. For others, it might be a home run.

> > I asked my doctor for permission to increase Zoloft from 250mg to 300mg. I started yesterday. It is already making me feel pretty loopy. I don't think it will help, but I wanted to fully explore it. There aren't too many stones left for me to turn.

My doctor cut me back to 250mg because I was feeling stoned all day long. I feel better for having skipped my evening dose last night.

Yes. I currently take 10mg. It takes the edge off of the anxiety and catastrophic thinking.

I've done that quite a few times over the years. I guess you never know from where the right answer will come.

Thanks for the support.
