I want to follow this thread, but I also wanted to ask Holden if he (assuming from the name) has any thoughts on what might help me I guess, if he wants to, but I'm not sure what info to give. A general curiosity though, what about Serotonin? It (SSRI's) makes me feel like I'm on acid, totally apathetic, seemingly more depressed and anxious, things feel unreal-ish.... I like Wellbutrin, but I think it might be a bit too activating. Like another poster said, it helps me get out of depression when I fall in. And according to my PX slips, I liked Effexor too. I liked Serzone, except that it made me almost too uninhibited, and I craved alcohol like crazy. Klonopin has been a pretty helpful med for me. Mood stabilizers have been somewhat helpful I think, but mostly just because they're numbing. I've never had a manic or hypomanic episode but I'm diagnosed as BPII. I've been on all kinds of other meds (illegal and not) and can give experiences with those too if it would help. I'm wondering if Dopamine might not be right for me because I think it might increase self consciousness, like a paranoia. I don't mean to be imposing, I just am desperate at this point and I feel like my pdoc is not one of the "good" ones, doesn't listen or care about the side effects, just wants to try the latest thing etc. (he put me on strattera when it first came out and I couldn't sleep for 3 days and he was like ya, we found out that one's bad, among other things) and it's kind up to me to figure things out I guess and you seem like you know your stuff, so I have to ask. *phew* Sorry for rambling. I kind of feel like an idiot, but there's a chance so..
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
