Paying for my QEEG was indeed very unappealing. But i'm getting desperate to find the right med or combo. that'll get the job done. I'm just trying to compile enough data so i can come to my own "educated" conclusion about what meds i should be taking.

One of the things i found was that taking tyrosine does help me. So you're definitely right about using aminos/herbs/supplements to help point one in the right direction. So here's where i'm at:

-tyrosine helps
-SSRI's do very little for me
-my father takes Sinemet for Parkinsonism (I may have a genetic predisposition toward low dopamine. Actually, i was thinking of popping one of them just to see what it would do for me.)
-the QEEG came back showing i have very low dopamine

At this point i'd say i'm ready to go the pro-dopamine/norepinephrine route. I'm going with Wellbutrin first and if that doesn't work i'll check out desiprimine or reboxetine or selegiline etc. Whether it's the right path remains to be seen. I'm cautiously optimistic...
