Thanks for the info.
I had tried Provigil, but that was after going off the Nardil and going onto Cymbalta. Not sure if it helped as I was on so many other meds at the time, Pindolol, Lamictal, Thyroid, Androgel, Lithium, Wellbutrin, Selegiline and some other amphetamines as well. I've never tried Strattera I believe. Atypical antipsyotics like Abilify and Seroquel made my depression worse. I also was able to get a hold of and try the dopaminergic TCA called Survector (amineptine) which helped some and boosted my libido.
I've always wondered about the cortisol or cortitropin releasing factor impairment. Several CHF antagonist/blockers are being studied and are in stage II or III. (www.neurotransmitter.net/newdrugs.html)
Thanks again for your input.
