One more antidepressant augmenter I forgot to mention: Kava-kava. I've used it a lot recently in high doses. It should be available in Health Supplement stores and many pharmacies (Webber brand is common here in BC). The scare some years ago over liver damage turned out to be due to contamination or deliberate adulteration; it's gradually coming back into favour and availability. As it's an herbal remedy, this really belongs on the P-B Alternative board, but I hate to break the thread. I'll keep it to the bare minimum.

Kava is now known to have 18 active ingredients with quite different properties, so it's an anxiolytic (like benzos), a DNRI anti-depressant & an MAOI-B anti-depressant (safe with all foods afaik) all rolled into one. In my experience, large doses produce initially mood improvement and activation similar to Ritalin, gradually shifting to more relaxation.

I'm a big fan - it's safe, effective, doesn't cause physical dependency, but it requires some experience to get the full benefit. I believe I've posted about it before on the Alternative board - go there for more info.

My Meds
Escitalopram 20 mg
Bupropion XR 75 mg
Diazepam 5 mg tid - weaning
Propranolol 20 mg tid
Robaxin - non-prescribed; weaning
Kava - non-Rx, prn
