> The rEEG makes no assumptions about diagnosis and can't predict side effects. With Poop-Out, I would predict that the rEEG would choose different medications than you had, or perhaps a combination such that the receptor would hold and not change it's regulation, thus keeping the effects. For example, mood stabilizers often will keep a receptor from re-regulating and thus Poop-out may not occur. Anecdotal stories of adding modafinal (Provigil) seemed to help prevent poop-out in some cases.

> Regarding where to get an rEEG... The company is small with little capacity and there aren't enough of people like me who know electrophysiology to make this common place. However, there is a large Neurofeedback community and most of them have the ability to collect the data in such a way that it can be processed by CNS. Then, you'd need a doctor that would be willing to consult with them or me or some medical director to help interpret and implement the results. You might want to write CNS and tell them where you're located as well as post it here. We might know someone in your area. Hope this is helpful.

Thanks for your feedback. I once suggested augmenting Celexa with a mood stabilizer to my doctor, he didn't agree with it for some reason. That's a good ideal about writing CNS, I'll follow up on that. I live in the Austin area. The Clinical Psychiatry News article at the beginning of this thread mentioned research being conducted at the University of Texas. So I might be able to find a contact there (or maybe be a participant in the clinical trial...)
