I've tried Vyvanse, Dexedrine, Ritalin, and Focalin. I could feel Focalin increase my mental energy only slightly; the improvement lasting about 5 hours. I have taken these things in conjunction with MAOIs. The next two weeks are crucial for me. I just adjusted my dosage my dosage of Abilify to 15 mg/day. I had plateaued at 10 mg/day. Something is "tickling" my brain, and I feelS improved. If the trajectory of my response to treatment remains positive after 2-3 weeks, it could mean that I am on my way towards remission. However, if I plateau or lose the therapeutic effect again, I am considering:

1. TMS treatments while continuing drug treatment.
2. Switch from Parnate to Effexor 300-400 mg/day.
3. Switch from Parnate to JZP-110, the new DNRI that might come out later this year according to PeterMartin.
