> Have you tried codeine cough syrup or tablets? It might work great for occasional use, but there's a serious risk that it would lose its effects if used too often. However, you may be able to extend its usefulness by adding memantine or dextromethorphan.

yikes! cough syrup! I prefer not to mess with narcotics/opiates unless I'm in grave pain. Which I'm not. I'm just trying to salvage a couple of low-quality hours in my day, which happen to coincide with a couple of important activities- driving, spending time "relaxing" at home, etc.

Interesting. I took a bronkaid tablet yesterday (for stuffy lungs, not bipolar-- cat has been sleeping on my pillow, llurpsie is allergic to cat) and I felt so much better within a bit, moodwise. This tablet has Ephedrine Sulfate in it. perhaps there's something ADHD about my bipolar agitation?

> And on the other hand, too much benzodiazepines might also make it hard to think - otherwise something like diazepam (Valium) might be useful. Perhaps Valium in combination with piracetam (or other nootropic, for restoring thinking)?

Nootropic- what fun! I've tried xanax (makes me grumpy and sleepy for about 4 hours. llurpsie's husband HATES xanax, picks up on it everytime I take it!

see ephedrine sulphate, above

centrally or peripherally?
what about a betablocker?

lots of helpful ideas- thanks lots. Now I'm off to look up more nootropics.
