Hi Lamdage.

That's great advice. Thank you. I'll try to be careful. I am relying on family members to recognize the emergence of mania. They know what to look for. I can only hope that I am receptive to their advice. So far, the only manic episodes I've had have been in association with MAOIs. It is likely that Abilify acted as a prophylactic against manic reactions to both Nardil and Parnate. Latuda maybe?

I have mostly recovered from withdrawal effects for having discontinued Abilify and Parnate. I didn't expect that I would be hit so hard. There is some residual anxiety, but the depression has stabilized. I am on day 4 of Trintellix treatment. I'm taking 5.0 mg/day. I felt numb and slowed-down initially, but that seems to be subsiding.

I needed to do something. I was stuck for too many years.

Thanks again.
