> it depends on your doctor but a long time ago they used combine amphetamines with barbitrates for depression and social withdrawl [mainly inhibited]. You may want to ask to switch to dextroamphetamine but for this case you may request to be either switched to Provigil or take it with Ritilin. I think taking an anyxiolic paticularlly lorazepam would help in this case.

Thanks for the advice, rj. I had been thinking of asking my doc about switching to dextroamphetamine or Provigil. He has no problem with prescribing benzos and right now I am on Ativan. I have never taken Neurontin or Lyrica, but I have read good things about them and depression, especially the Lyrica, so I will ask him about that too.
