Hey Scott,

Thanks for helping me out... going to start imipramine in a day or two. I'm pretty skeptical, but still a bit hopeful. I figure if it does help, at least with this attitude, I'll know that it's not a placebo effect.

In any case, I wanted to get your thoughts on another topic - for future reference.

Above you mention Abilify - I was just curious what your thoughts/opinions/observations might be regarding Abilify vs. Sulpiride (low dose - 50 mg - 150 mg / day)?

Sounds as if Abilify might tend to be more stimulating/activating?

I think perhaps one of those, along with a stimulant might be a helpful combination for me. A stimulant alone doesn't get me all of the way "there," but stimulants definitely make the biggest impact for me...

They don't really make me feel "stimulated" (I can take my 20mg of dex and easily take a nap - though I try not to, since that's kind of "wasting" the stimulant, to my mind, since they're so short-acting).

But they definitely lift the veil, so to speak, for me - or clear the fog, etc.

Anyway, just wondering if you might have any thoughts on the relative potentials, or pros & cons, of Abilify vs. Sulpiride.

Good luck w/Emsam - I hope you can get the red tape straightend out, and that it turns out to be your unexpected "Silver Bullet"!

michael
