Zeugma,

Thanks for the response. I was surprised when the pdoc told me to continue to take Celexa as well, particularly since I understood clomipramine to be very serotogenic. I had such high hopes for the clomipramine. And, I really thought it was having more of an effect on me than the Celexa. But, it really hasn't at 50 mg when I think about it. I think 75 mg would probably do the trick, but I am just finding the dizziness particularly to be problematic.

I know that most of my problem is anxiety, all stemming from a huge panic attack I had a number of months ago when I was getting over the flu and suffering from really bad iron deficiency and when I was slightly burnt-out from working 11 - 12 hour days for years with minimal, if any, time off. I keep replaying that stupid panic attack, and it makes me anxious when I go to do anything (the old "what if" mind set that just won't shut off). The pdoc does not want me using Xanax. I told him months ago that when I go through something like this I only need the Xanax for a week or 2 at a dose of only .25 mg (or half of that) once or twice a day. Then I am fine. Oh well. I do have a small amount of Xanax on hand, so perhaps I will test my theory.

If you don't mind my asking, what side effects, besides weight gain, made you give up on the Provigil? Provigil is something I remain intersted in, particularly if my trials with NADH and DMAE don't pan out.

Thanks again, and sorry for rambling on so much.

Tamara
