> have you tried any old-school stimulants, like Ritalin? *****nope****If wellbutrin helps, but Klonopin sucks, maybe its some kind of ADD-ish disorganized stuff that would respond to something stimulating, like the Provigil you mentioned or something old school like Ritalin or Adderall.

That would be fun- to be able to fix this problem.

> I hear you on the sleep thing. Personally, I like old-school Ambien (not the CR) best b/c when it works it works on both ends of the sleep prob: getting to sleep and staying asleep. There's also bunches of benzo sleep aids out there (Restoril rocks, btw) that could help w/o too much of a hangover effect.

I will ask pdoc about it. ambien has worked well for me too. Gives me a feeling of well-being right before I fall asleep. It only lasts about 5 hours for me, but when I *do* wake up, I feel perfectly rested.

> Just out of curiosity: does Klonopin make you dysphoric/pissed off? I was just thinking you might want to try xanax xr or serax...something with a little less of a "downer" effect on mood. Then again, I'm not your doc, lol.
> I hope everything works out for you.
klonopin makes me psychomotorically agitated and kind of dysphoric, yeah. I've tried xanax, and it makes me very dizzy and sleepy and grumpily
Thanks med_e for your support
