In many ways a complete failure in an antidepressant trial is easier to take than benefit-followed-by-loss-of-benefit. The "Flowers for Algernon" thing.

Day 11 was 1.8 mg AM; it brought a remarkable level of relief from depression. When it started to wear off later in the day, another 0.5 mg brought flat-out REMISSION.

Day 12 (today), I had to go to 2 mg before my acidic thoughts even receded. Not a lot of benefit. This afternoon I took *another* 0.5 mg trying to get the relief I had yesterday but.....

When I started to compose this post an hour ago, things were not good. But I guess that last 0.5 mg kicked in a few minutes ago – about 1 hr 40 min after I took it. I've noticed this with me & bupe: it takes almost 2 hours for a dose to affect me (except for dizziness, which comes on fast).

So all my bitter resentful paragraphs get crumpled & tossed. And now, since I'm feeling that it's possible, I have to go outside & get a little work done before it gets dark! I'll comment more tonight.

THANKS to everyone for your ongoing interest & support. I'll reply to your specific posts tonight.
