Hey Christ_empowered!

Great idea! I once saw the Head of Columbia Psychopharmacology, Dr. Sandy Glassman, about 12 years ago for a consultation. He was the first to recommend lamictal. He said if it did not work, add Wellbutrin just like you have recommended. Wow! I have found gabapentin good for my anxiety. Lamictal up to 300 mg made me feel okay. I didn't add the Wellbutrin to my Lamictal trial because I had some hard work training coming up and Wellbutrin before worsen my anxiety, panic so I added back Nardil 45 mg to Lamictal 200 mg. But maybe with Abilify and gabapentin, that combo would work! Great, Great idea. I did add zyprexa 2.5 mg once to Zoloft and that made me feel terrible, zombie like with tongue twitching. Would Abilify be okay if I failed Zyprexa???

I did lithium 900 mg for a year with a blood lithium level of 0.6. Since then I only take 450 mg which might be about 0.3. I think my labs lithium level ranges doesn't not register below 0.4. But mostly, if I got a lithium level and then I saw one of my other colleagues such as the orthopedic, ophthamologist, etc. saw that in my medical record, my secret of being depressed would be know by my all my colleagues. That could lead to me getting released by my employer. It really stink seeing the same doctors I work with. It seems unethical. I have though of self paying for lithium levels at an outside lab.

I love the though of getting off these toxic toxic medications. I feel like I am taking medications from the 60's. This is what I have been asking and are getting great suggestions from everyone here! How to get off nardil (and lithium, klonopin would be a bonus!) Thanks so much Christ_empowered! And I have been maximizing my complimentary approaches with no caffeine, no EtOH, sound sleep, exercise, Vitamin D 1000 IU, avoiding television, getting outside in nature, meditation, church and reading Buddhism.

Wax on, Wax off ..... hahahaha! Your the Best too!

Thanks a million!

PS. Does Abilify low dose cause weight gain, diabetes?
