>Enjoy your "remission".

SLS, there is something seriously wrong with you if you are resorting to air quotes around my feeling better. That's pathetic. I completely agree with the comments above that you might be hypomanic. I've never seen you so opinionated and dogmatic about your very narrow view of the channels through which wellness can occur. I've never seen you so dismissive of somebody's path to recovery. Lately, you seem to have become very dogmatic in terms of your views of psychiatry as a religion. You thump the bible of dosing and duration without realizing that psychiatry is a continually evolving product of observation of collective and individual patient responses. Good science is responsive. A large number of patients simply do not respond to conventional approaches. How is it that psilocybin, ECT, rTMS and ketamine can produce remission that lasts for weeks beyond the last dose? Nobody knows. If I can add a short course of effexor to my regiment (when it falls short), and it brings me to a place of remission that lasts for a few months why do you care? I consider the psychiatric medications I take to be complementary to some of the alternatives that I take. My full toolbox looks something like this:

- vitamin D (400 IU)
- methylfolate (0.5 - 1mg)
- EPA (~1000mg) DHA (~1000mg)
- rhodiola extract (400mg)
- Amur Corktree Bark Extract (100mg)
- Running 40 min / day
- Phenylethylamine 5mg
- Green Tea (1 cup)
- Coffee (1 cup)
- Organic Cocoa Powder (1tbsp)
- GABA (500mg as needed)
- Niacin 100mg
- Magnesium 50mg
- Incredibly Healthy Diet
- Lots of black turtle beans (epicatechin)
- Periodic fasting (once / week)
- Periodic wake therapy 1-2x per month
- Bright light therapy (2 hr / day)
- Low dose multivitamin (1-2x / week)
- SAMe (50mg a day) 1-2x / week
- Agmatine
- rTMS
- psychiatric meds as needed

Conventional antidepressants have a range of side effects (both short and long term). There is new safety data emerging on long term cardiovascular, cognitive, reproductive and metabolic side effects. I'm going to continue do it my way. So, but out. Physically and metabolically I am in excellent shape for my age. I run a half marathon a few times a week. I want to keep it that way.

The fact that I am rarely here now, is testament to the fact that I am doing ok and have better things to do than sit here and read your millionth essay on the same friggen thing!
