There was a two week difference between your post saying you were at 40% and your post saying you'd gone down to 25%. Is it possible to segregate permanent change from the natural ups and downs of any illness? If you've felt well for a while on this medication, is it possible that this is a dip rather than a decline?
I'm also wondering if you have felt good on a medication for an extended length of time, or if you only felt like it was really working for the first little while you were on it? Is it possible that it's the shock of a change in brain chemistry that makes you feel good for a while? I think on any medication there's a drift back to setpoint. I definitely find this with Provigil. Now I have to take my morning Provigil to avoid sleeping all day. It doesn't feel like it initially did.
