With hyperexcitable glutamate neurons, you might get a combination of anxiety and dysphoria at the same time towards the end of the dosing period. Until the sodium channels become occupied again, the anxiety would persist during a time when increased GABA receptors occupancy produces the dysphoria. I am still mulling all of this over, so I am sure I've got it wrong.

Well, it seems that the dysphoria has rubbed off for the most part. I think it was more of a situational thing. Where I haven't been in many social situations, because they have been too difficult to tolerate, and just the pressure stemming from it.

I think perhaps that 4 doses might be more prudent. Is it ok to dose at 6am-10am-2pm-10pm? Or is that last space too much? I might find that if I dose at 10, that I won't need the 2pm so early. I begin to do my strange obsessional/compulsive quirks around 10am, and it seems to alieviate it w/ in 30 mins, so i'd like to do it then

I'm sure that you are more for advocating the ER version, but it just seems to act so much differently, I don't know why.
