> Hey now how am i going to figure out if creatine has anti-fatigue effects in MAOI takers? Sounds like you found a good combination though. keep me updated. oh and promise you'll be carful if you notice signs of hypomania. not sure what i'll do, if the klonopin helps my anxiety i gues i'll have to stick with the pdoc, maybe i'll ask about guanfacine for days i am studying. if not i might go rogue again and try reboxetine or nortriptiline.
> so is the ritalin what helped or is the parnate just kicking in on its own? maybe its not clear.
It isn't clear except I'm only taking 1-5mg tab a day (nothing) and I wondered how that could make a difference, so more research, it seems at least at this one source, that the MAOI potentiates the Ritalin, not the other way around. Maybe then you feel more ritalin? Works with MAOI? Not sure. If you recall my biggest problem had become incapacitating lethargy. So. Its been 5 days, not at all like that feeling you get after dosing. (I wish) I'd say full remission, except I'll need to go slowly, as I'm finding after 10 weeks of laying around, I'm a little slow cognitively and physically. So at the gym I'll do half the work out I normally did and work up, I take longer at the grocery store, and a dinner party I had (thats right, I said Jade had a dinner party) well, lets just say everyone had a great time but it was far from my usually organized get togethers. But...WHO CARES!!!! I just wanted to feel like myself again and I do. What more could a girl ask for? (course, santas on his way)
As for the creatine, (thats whats in No-Xplode, right?) I took it once before a work-out and I felt mild lift and a bit more energy. My nephew took too much one time, and had an anxiety attack after a workout. I called the company about it, but I'm sure you know all about its properties, etc. I'd say the equivalent of 5mg ritalin, but I had tolerance to ritalin also. So its been 5 days, I think I'm there, I'm gonna try to jump back into my old routine as soon as possible so I don't back slide.
Okay, so where are you with everything? Change anything? You been staying out of that kitchen sink? Dumb question. Let me know whats up and I'll keep you posted. If I didn't say this before, thanks for ALL your help. Even tho I confuse you with my niceness, haha, you are a funny guy! Oh, Phillipa and I are placing bets on your age....care to cheat and accidentally hide it in a post?
Okay then, don't know where you are but Happy Holidays, in case I don't catch up with you by the wknd *<((: ^ )>>
