> Hi Kat,
> Being that you do well with Ritalin, have you tried the MAOI selegline? Apparently, it's a stimulant derivative (as I learned here). It comes in a patch form, Emsam. I think a few people here have done well with it, and I believe it has less side effects than other MAOIs. It was too stimulating for me, and I don't know much about MAOI's, but, just a thought...
Hi Bryn...I really appreciate your suggestion, but I've tried Ensam and it made me really agitated...I just couldn't tolerate it. Too bad there aren't any MAO-A reversible inhibitors in the US, as there are in Europe. Seems like something like that would really help. Oh well, someday, maybe. For the meantime, I'll give Nardil another try, albeit at a lower dose (prob 45mg a day) so that it doesn't cause the ataxia I got the first time I tried it. At that dose my anxiety was completely blown away, and it may eventually help my depression somewhat.
Sorry to babble so much, I'm on my Ritalin :D
Hope you are well,
