Hi EE,
All suggestions very much appreciated. Thank you so much for your input. A different SSRI was at the top of my list, but in order to do so, I would have to be able to taper off of Effexor. This will have to wait until I am better physically and mentally. I, too, tried Lamictal at 200 mg. daily and all it did for me was cause me to become "angry" and hostile. My pdoc feels that this may have been some kind of "disinhibition" caused by Lamictal and Klonopin. I became intensely dislikable (and for good reason) for about six weeks. Glad my friends still love me! I was hoping that Neurontin would be covered by my insurance, but unless I have post-herpetic neuralgia or a peripheral neuropathic pain, my insurance will not authorize it. I read that Neurontin fared no better than placebo when used as a mood stabilizer, so perhaps I am moving in the right direction with trying Li. Hmmm. Nothing is worth nausea in my book. Hopefully I tolerate it well.
Ill keep you posted on my progress. Thanks again for all your suggestions.
