You know, I meant to talk to my pdoc about that, but I forgot. The pdoc at the hospital where I was committed seemed to think I am.

scary antipsychotic...EPS - Yikes!! I got akathisia from Zyprexa and every other AP I've tried, typical or not, has made me agitated

I had a love affair with hydroxazine. Until it turned on me. My personal best: tolerance to a drug in one week.

Something to consider, but still it has scary EPS, just not as strong

> What about gabapentin?

Used to work, it pooped out, or more like my body gave up on it. Tapering off of it now.

> What about Paxil?

Paxil made me really agitated
>

After my bad experience with Tegretol (have never been so depressed in my life) I'm leary of Trileptal. But something to consider.

Lexapro has really helped my anxiety in the not so distant past, so we're gonna try that. We'll see. I was thinking zoloft might be a good alternative, b/c I've never taken it at therapeutic doses and I've read it can really help anxiety.

Thanks for your recommendations Scott! They are always good ones and are much appreciated. Unfortunately my liver makes taking psychotropic drugs a challenge b/c I just metabolize so fast. My Mom asked if my pdoc is bald. I said no, why do you ask? She said b/c he must tear out all his hair whenever he sees you coming!

And how are you doing, Scott?
