> It did work in the past although it made me irritable. Maybe that will subside after a few weeks!

I don't know why anyone would want to revisit the past unless it was wildly successful. I think it makes a lot more common sense to find new ground and to expand one's options.

Remeron is basically the world's second strongest antihistamine and an over-glorified antidepressant. It's a great sleep aid at low doses until it poops out. Its other mechanisms - for example release of NE - are very weak compared to its antihistamine action. If someone thinks a powerful antihistamine is going to help, then ok. I don't see that but someone might. It would not have even made it past FDA as an antidepressant without the significant political and economic influence behind it.

I have a hypothesis on this med. Because it does work sometimes. It really helps some people a lot. Not often. But when it does it really does.

As an antihistamine it is going to reduce all kinds of inflammation in the body. And if anyone is in the lyme/psychiatry camp like I am, then it makes perfect sense that a strong anti-inflammatory would help someone's mood.

But it is all much too complex to state it that simply. Just thinking out loud...

I think there is a medication that could help you a lot and it is probably the opposite of anything you thought of. It will give you energy with peace and focus, not energy with anxiety and nervousness, it will give you renewed engagement in life and hobbies and social activities. It will stabilize whatever is wrong in the NE/DA circuits, regardless if they are too low or too high. This med has to be started at very low doses and increased slowly as to avoid over-stimulation in the beginning. That goes away in a couple weeks at higher doses. It is the med that my doctor said she prescribes more often than any other med because it helps so many different people with different problems, everything from depression to anxiety to fatigue to schizophrenia to ADHD and ADD.

Ritalin. Start 2.5mg bid with a goal of 20mg tid in 3 months.

Really! :-).
