Hi Pfinstegg.

This is what I am currently taking:

Parnate 80mg
nortriptyline 100mg
Keppra 1000mg
Abilify 10mg

Is there a particular depressive subtype that seems most treatable with rTMS?

I have what appears to be a severe bipolar depression. It appears most like atypical unipolar depression. Anergia, psychomotor retardation, impaired memory and concentration, and anhedonia are most prominent. In addition, I am hypercortisolemic and a DST non-suppressor.

Do you happen to know what percentage of motor threshold your treatments apply?

My doctor disappointed me today. He is still too afraid of "playing" with MAOIs in combination with TCAs. I wanted to switch from Parnate to Nardil, but he would want me to discontinue the nortriptyline to do so. He also suggested that I consider VNS. He gave me a video to watch regarding the procedure, which I haven't viewed yet. I am not real big on the idea - at least not yet.

In the meantime, I am still trying to get a hold of mifepristone. The players don't seem to be playing on the same ballfield. The people responsible for making this thing happen seem to be vague on what needs to be done. When the dust settles, I might have to commit to spending $2000 for an 8 day treatment.

I am seriously thinking about trying the rTMS sooner than later.

Thanks for all of your input.

- Scott
