> Mr. Brainbeard,
> I thought I would add my little story to your thread. I've been diagnosed with hypodopaminergic depression, and have struggled with the symptoms all my life. For what it's worth, low-dose Geodon (10mg b.i.d.) has indeed been very effective at helping my dopamine-deficient symptoms (difficulty concentrating, anhedonia, low-motivation, etc) without any negative effects on anxiety or anything else. Its positive effects on this symptom-cluster are quite pronounced. So I think it might indeed by a beneficial part of the SSRI cocktail you propose.
I just wrote to you on the Medication board that 20mg of Geodon would produce anxiety and dysphoria. I'm glad that is not happening to you.
