He told me that nicotine is for the moment probably the best i can take for now.
He is sure that his dosulepin-plan will work and thus will keep me on it for at least another 4 months. During those 4 months he wants to stretch time and keep me happy with the nicotine.

I myself am in doubt of wether or not an maoi would be good for me. I've heard they have some terrible side-effects (insomnia for example, man i would hate that) so i don't really know what is the best for me.

After some research i did find out why it probably is the nicotine is helping me. There are 2 reasons:
First the nicotine stimulates a whole series of receptors in the brain, including ofcourse the nicotine receptor itself. This causes a release of noradrenaline i believe. This gives me a small boost and keeps me focused, it's nice when you need to 'be cool' and stay focused.

Secondly, after +- 30 minutes, the noradrenaline is broken off into dopamine. This injection i feel very well, and it makes me relaxed and more enjoyable.

I wouldn't know what would be best for me right now, but for the moment, i will follow my doc and just go on with my current treatment.
If it fails, after 4 months we will know, we will switch to nardil and take away the sulpiride and dosulepin.
