Hi Z

>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.

How did perphenazine affect your DP/DR? Did it make it worse? I wonder what a dopamine agonist would do..... (unfortunately, dopamine agonists sometimes cause 'sleep attacks' - notably ropinirole and pramipexole)

>Unfortunately, my insurance will only cover 200 mg, so that experiment has come to an end.

We have generic modafinil in the UK now, 100mg and 200mg tablets. Do you have the generic in the US yet? It might be a lot cheaper.

>I think my best hope os when Sparlon comes out early next year. It's just Provigil but in higher doses.

What strengths of tablet will Sparlon come as?

Kind regards

Ed
