Just dig up any information you can find in the archives of this board as well as google searching, and bring that info to your doctor....to show him that ultra high doses are indeed not uncommon, can work when normal doses don't, and don't seem to produce any more risk than normal doses. That to me makes a lot more sense than the augmentation merry-go-round.
But again, time, there is no substitute for time. It took a long time for our disease to settle in, and it can take time to undo it, even when on the perfect med.
> Hey Bleau Berry, I thought my Psychiatrist was just trying to take my money by stretching out the duration of my treatment with him at first, but after exploring my alma mater's electronic database, I did discover several long-term studies for SSRI's, but none for Parnate. However, Vickmack, the poster above, informed me that he is being treated very similar to the way I have been. I'm not sure if my psychiatrist is willing to go up any higher, but he is certainly open to augmentation. I've learned to just give in and trust him. He went to Harvard for undergrad and Yale for med school, so I'm sure he knows what he's talking about, but he has never been a patient and that changes things a little. Thanks so much for helping.
