Sure, but that shouldn't be grounds for immediate dismissal, especially when I've been working with my current pdoc (an ADHD specialist) for 5+ months now.

I don't think it's the Depakote. All SSRIs space me out and worsen my inattentiveness.

Pity, 'cos it isn't available where I hail from.

Based on what? I'm well familiar with akathisia at this point; it was unmistakable.
> You have the wrong Idea. Sampling new medications is fun!
I suppose, though I'd rather be like reading new books and stuff.
