I'm definatley leaning towards the Parnate route.Gabapentin worked well for me for a short period of time when I tried it a year ago.it just pooped out and from what I read it seems to become dose resistant.I was at the higher dose of 2700mg and finally it just lost it's effectiveness.I've taken Lyrica once 50mg and felt very sluggish as if in dimly lit tunnel.I of course made the wise decision to take it right before work.Perfect time to experiment with a new med,right.Working as a a checker at a grocery store.Yawning as I check people out,slurred speech and all"did you find everything all right,"paper or plastic?,Huh!".I sure got some strange looks on that shift.I'm suprised they didn't drug test me after that one.I've heard Lyrica can help with Fibromyalgia and since it seems like about 50%-60% of people posting on SAD/Depression sites might suffer from this condition,myself included,it might be a viable option.I would just have to adjust to the med.Overall,I've heard of Buspar as being weak med but I have heard some positive feedbackA few people have said it has helped after a month or two.Recently,I've heard nothing but praise for Selegiline but in and of itself will not be as effective for SAD.Thanks for the responses.Any other thoughts on these psych.med matters for the old SAD/Depression/OCD/god knows what???
