> You're welcome. Your questions are also helpful to me. Has the Cymbalta done anything at all for you yet?
I'm off of the Cymbalta completely now. I couldn't tolerate the side effects in my present situation. Also, I am afraid of using anything serotonergic (without a dopaminergic) right now that might possibly make my dopamine problems worse. I may reserve the right to try it again at a later date. I just have to figure out what to do next. I have been thinking of Parnate though that would probably also put me to sleep - at least initially. (I'm basing this on the fact that selegiline does and they're very similar). OTOH, I read/posted an abstract recently that spoke about its ability to downregulate those DA autoreceptors. I might have to deal with some major fatigue for a while to get the therapeutic effect.
Most likely I'll just sit here thinking about this and changing my mind a million times before I do anything.
How are those purple dancing elephants?
