I'm doing pretty damned well right now. It's relative, of course. I am probably 35% of the way there. You don't realize how sick you were until you begin to recover. I am really working towards returning to work next year. I am beginning to believe that it will happen. A 50% improvement should do it.

Minocycline is making the difference between plateauing on prazosin and moving forwared towards remission. I temporarily discontinued the minocycline to see if raising the prazosin alone would do the job. I seemed to lose ground and reached a point of stagnation. Once I was satisfied that I had plateaued, I added back the minocycline. Within a week, I am beginning to feel the magic again.

Heeeeere we go...

My current regime:

Parnate 80 mg/day
nortriptyline 150 mg/day
Lamictal 200 mg/day
lithium 300 mg/day
Abilify 10 mg/day
prazosin 15 mg/day
minocycline 200 mg/day

7 drugs? Well, until medical science solves the puzzle, I am stuck with polypharmacy. I am incredibly fortunate.
