> by cocktail you mean I'd take all three of them?

Yes.

Lamictal, Wellbutrin, Abilify (Effexor)

There are several people I know who were treatment resistant who responded favorably to these three drugs taken together. Of course, you might not react the same way. You can line up 10 people, and get 10 different reactions to the same one drug. Another drug that can be added to the other three is Effexor. Each drug helps to stabilize

People recommending one treatment or another will have their favorites to promote. I like these drugs because they work. Why they work would be difficult to ascertain at this point given the current state of neuroscience. However, an argument can be made that these drugs help to increase dopamine function either directly or indirectly. If these drugs don't work for you or produced intolerable side effects, this information would be useful when refining future treatments. As far as I can tell, there are no serious interactions between these drugs.

How are you feeling right now? I'm thinking that taking a mood stabilizer might help. The ones I'm thinking of include Tegretol, Trileptal, and Lyrica. Maybe Depakote. The goal here is to use one of these as a replacement for the pro-GABA effects of alcohol.
