Well Ed, after further consideration w/ my doc, im going back to ole trusty paxil for me. It has worked great in the past. There goes my sex life. Does welbutrin help counter the sexual side effects? Although it is terrible for people w/ anxiety i hear. Might have to do the viagra thing, sigh, im only 28.

As far as DP/DR is concerned, i am a frequent visitor of dpselfhelp.com, the biggest community around.

There currently is no treatment for the disorder. Some have had sucess w/ ssri + lamictal, and klonopin helps many.

There is currently a big investigation going on right now, and i know from an inside source that the intention of the surveys, is to get permission to try OPIATE ANTAGONISTS (namely naltrexone)in studies.

I know that mine is anxeity based, as are most. Seems that 50 percent got it after a big panic attack, and the other 50 from drugs. So obviously the brain is dissasociating from the extreme stress. It is on self defense 24/7, everything become a threat. For me w/ DR, the environment feels and seems extremely odd. Huge perceptual shifts.

So although it was anxeity based, doesn't mean that my chemistry hasn't changed in other parts of the brain that ssris can't touch.
So tryin to hang in there til there is an effective treatment out.

Regards,

Brain
