Very interesting to read all this Elroy. My doctors seem to feel the same way. Anxiety/depression driving the cortisol, and not the other way round. I've just had another round of endocrinological testing and another MRI to see if my pituitary tumor has grown since last year but no results yet. I did have an EEG which was normal.

I've been wondering about the same issues as you. I've got to get/keep this anxiety controlled but I really dont' want to get heavily into benzo land. It scares me. So Im thinking depakote or some other mood stabilizer. Maybe even Lyrica or lithium. I don't know. I feel like "here we go again" a whole new battle of finding the right anticonvulsive drug that will work without intolerable side effects.

I can tell you one thing. When my pdoc raised my Celexa dose from 10 mg to 20 mg I felt my jittery nervous "too much adrenaline" feeling skyrocket.
