> > > I found a transcript of the interview with solomon. He takes remeron, zoloft, wellbutrin, namenda, zyprexa, and something called remenedine (which I can't find any info on) for weight control. I can't imagine taking that much medicine (but I would if it was the only thing between me and suicide).

> I couldn't find anything on Remenedine either, but I don't think it's Ranitidine; that's Zantac for stomach acid. I thought maybe it was Amantadine, which is for the flu, but also related to Parkinson's... One of my biggest issues w/these meds is that the weight gain is so upsetting to me that it's impossible to even judge the treatment because of the depression from gaining weight.

Yeah, not to mention sedation, and sexual side effects... yada, yada, yada. It never ends. That's why I originally was surprised by his cocktail. It's amazing to me that not only do people function on such large amounts of meds, but they seem to function better. I personally can barely tolerate one or two meds at low doses, and endless experimention to find that magical combo of umpteen simultaneous psychoactive drugs would kill me right quick.
