Hi PN :-)

Sorry for the delay in responding - my new internet connection is currently very tempremental, I'm not sure what's wrong. Most days I can't log on to the internet at all.

>It's hard to explain, but bupe keeps that bizarre post-success panic away.

Do you worry about the possibility of 'poop out'?

>I take 2 mg Subutex tablet early in the morning and about 1 mg about 1:00 PM. (Oh! Be right back.....) It takes 1-2 hours to get any mood/thought benefit. The first dose wears off after 4-8 hours, but the second dose can last into the night.

Perhaps you could get a more consistent effect by taking it in three divided doses - which is often necessary when it's used as an analgesic. What do you think? You could take 2mg when you wake up in the morning, 0.5mg four hours later and another 0.5mg after a further four hours.

>magnesium citrate

Mag citrate is an osmotic laxative - it works in the same way as MiraLax, you won't need to combine them. MiraLax is probably a bit safer than mag citrate though, which is why I recommended it.

Bisacodyl will be useful if your constipation worsens and an increased dose of MiraLax doesn't help.

>I'm still taking 17g of Miralax every day.

It is adequate at this dose? Any side effects?

>I still have no real drive or interests.

Ever tried nortriptyline?

>Maybe if I keep working, exposing myself to rewarding situations, etc, I'll start coming alive again.

I do believe you will :-)

Love

Ed
