> thanks paulbwell! were you on lithium, too? i'll look into the magnesium. my doctors tend to be skittish and mainstream, though, so i don't know how they'll take it if i mention replacing the lithium.

> sorry to hear there's no adderall in australia. concerta is expensive here, too, i suspect more so because they make pills of ridiculous dosages like 18, 27, and 36mg. for that reason, i have to take three pills whereas if they made a more conventional dosage, maybe i could take less.

> sorry i don't know more about the oxycodone and stimulant interaction. the only thing close that comes to mind is cocaine, of course another stimulant, but one that has anesthesizing properties. i would guess that cocaine + oxycodone would numb you up pretty good. amphetamines and ritalin don't have that property, so i can't think of a mechanism by which they would enhance the effect of oxycodone. i have no idea, though. maybe it's another of those "everyone is different" things...

Hi Care,

No I wasn't on Lithiun but I thought I was BP for many years and so did several PCP, went throught hell with Panic symptoms while in my late teens. I did take a MS called Tegretol for (prophylaxis of MD illness) and it made life look grey-yuk.

I was not suggesting you stop ANY med inc: Lithium, just that Magnesium (ASPARTATE-only 10x better absorbed than Oxide) is a muscle relaxant, and shares many nurochemical properties as Lithium. I find it greatly enhances the effectiveness of Benzos I take, which It has been reported to do, It surly couldn't hurt to supplement with?

Take Care. Care, haha

PS> I'm not in Australia
