> Can you get amisulpride? At low doses it acts as a stimulant for some and there are studies showing it's effectiveness for depression.

Yes. But I don't know if my MD will be wanting to prescribe it. He is not a specialist in psychopharmacology so he is more used to prescribing SRI with a benzodiazepine to a just divorced person than treating a twenty years old chronic depression with a cocktail of on- and off-label drugs.

But I know that's a standard in french psychiatry to augment antidepressant with carpipamine (prazinil) or a low dose of a benzamide like amilsupride (solian) in case of dysthymia with inhibition.

I don't worry about complementary drugs. Are available :
- thyroidian hormones
- adrafinil
- amilsupride/carpipramine

What I can't decide for is the principal drug : desipramine, moclobemide or viloxazine.
I think I must experiment each to discover what is the best for me.
I see my MD tomorow. So I suppose that I will obtain the one the most familiar to him.
