Hi again Ed,

I think DP/DR is somewhere in that vague spectrum of 'negative symptoms' which are common (more or less) to schizophrenia and severe depression, and which are known to be (in the case of schizophrenia) responsive to stimulants but at the cost of exacerbating positive symptoms. I experienced some relief, much more mild than I received from Ritalin, when i increased the Provigil dose to 300 mg. Unfortunately, my insurance will only cover 200 mg, so that experiment has come to an end.

I did feel more social on 300 mg, and also less socially anxious. But that could be because I felt more awake at 6 pm, and less in a stumbling haze. The DP is really a physical feeling of not being there at all, unsettling like a dream from which you're completely absent.

I think my best hope os when Sparlon comes out early next year. It's just Provigil but in higher doses. Hopefully I can get my insurance to cover it.
