Hi Scott,

> What's going on with memantine?

Still at 5 mg. The improvement seems to be holding for the moment. I also dropped Lamictal down to 200 mg.

I still have a hint of a depersonalization feeling (e.g. voice sounds strange, etc.). It's not extreme and I'm able to deal with it for now. I don't kinow if I'm adjusting to the memantine or the reduced Lamictal helps, but I'm sleeping less in the daytime and don't feel as weak. I actually feel motivated to do a few more things. Some of the "stupid" feeling is fading. I'm trying to decide if my emotions are detchaed, or simply brought down from overly intense to normal.

As far as I'm concerned the jury is still out b/c so many drugs have not panned out in the past. But it's defintely worth keeping on with it.

> I stopped taking it.
> I have a major family event coming up next week. I found that even 10mg of memantine was causing a blunting of motivation, fatigue, and weakness. I didn't want to take a chance that these things would work against me.

Have you tried 5 mg?

> I think I experienced a reduced tolerance to cold while I was taking memantine 20mg.

I think I'm a little chillier, but it's not nearly as bad as with Celexa, so it's livable for the time being.

I'm sorry the memantine retrial hasn't worked out as you hoped. What's next on your hit parade?
