My p-doc had mentioned requip which might be gentler than the bromocriptine. I tried bromocriptine years ago and hated the way it made me feel. Also ritalin or adderall do wonders for some as an augment. Than there's another agonist miraprex which works for some.
My p-doc originally mentioned an agonist for the clomipramine and now has backed off. Wants me to wash out and try marplan an maoi.
