In reply to Requip for Social Phobia/Depression?, posted by jparsell82` on September 16, 2004, at 19:51:15
I'm on Requip as augmenting agent with Cymbalta and Lamictal for resistant depression. I also have social phobia. It was started because of apathy and amotivation on just Cymbalta and Lamictal, although the Lamictal did help improve my overall depression. It has worked very well for both the motivation problems and apathy (3 months so far, without any poop out), has definite mood elavating effects, and also has made me more comfortable in social settings and somewhat more aggressive in approaching people.
There are only two studies using this agent in depression; a link to one is below.
