> hi. me, again. some people take...suboxone, I think it is....for treatment-resistant depression. I think its a Schedule III drug, so not -as- regulated as the amphetamines. I think some uses require the prescriber to have special training, licensing, etc. I don't know what the rules are for use in mood disorders.

thanks! Suboxone is an opioid replacement therapy drug (I'm sure that's not the right phrase). Ironically I was offered it to get off of oxycodone but apparently it's as difficult if not more difficult to quit! And yes, the prescriber has to be have specific accreditation, there's not many of them around.

Haven't tried TCA+amphetamine, mainly because TCA's just zombify me. I've tried 4 or 5 and never any success. It's worth bearing in mind though, thanks.

He won't consider anything off label. He's sadly not interested in off-label stuff at all. I need to find a new PDoc but finding progressive one with MAOI experience is very, very hard even in NYC.


I love the smell of Abilify in the morning. The smell, you know that chemical smell. Smells like victory. Some day this war's gonna end...
