Jeali, did you ever talk to you GP about the AD-- you were interested in Emsam, but even Parnate might be worth trying.

Maybe it's time to tell him more about what you've been experiencing emotionally.

If you're terribly worried about weight gain, Parnate or Emsam seem like good choices. And if, by some chance, you do gain weight-- it won't be much.

Plus one of those might give you more energy, and reduce some of the anxiety. I've found both of them anxiolytic--

It's hard to fight against negative thinking, and the sense of futility-- and therefore to do what might help for youself, when it feels so hard-- but this might be that point when you need to take it to a more honest level with your doctor. He didn't react as you'd feared, last time around.

Plus, I worry that the dose of xanax is getting high. Maybe it's okay for you-- but my pdoc, who's worked with physicians who've become addicted to xanax, says it's a really awful struggle to get off, if that happens.

He mentioned 4 mg a day as a dividing line around which you get into the more addictive levels. Try to be careful, maybe cut down on days when you can?
