The best meds for anhedonia

Posted by PetersKeys on August 17, 2009, at 15:00:27

What do you think the best meds for anhedonia are(inability to experience pleasure?).

Also are there any good meds that increase sociability and social skills with other people.

Wellbutrin is probably the best drug for anhedonia.

Lyrica is an amazing drug that can change your personality.

Probably, but not always. Wellbutrin has done nothing for my anhedonia. :(

I figured there was a chance I'd like it, but wondered if it would be hard to stop?

Benzos are bad enough.

Running several habits in tandem becomes complicated.

I hear Parnate is good with this. Best combined with a low dose TCA for sleep.

Lyrica didn't change my personality either though. And pooped out after a few months. When it worked it was nice for calm though.

Emsam/selegine in theory might also be good for this I think. Opiates too, but we don't get those.

Hi,

I've only been on Lyrica for a week.
So I don't know about this drug longterm.

Anyway, I went to see a new barber.
The barber was a woman of suitable age.

Normally I don't like to talk about myself.
I was like a different person with this barber.

I came across as a very pleasant easy-going man.
The woman was delighted with her new customer.

I've been thinking about this meeting since.
Lyrica actually changed my personality.

So Lyrica can be a miracle drug.
But of course, all drugs have side effects.

Best regards,
X-ray

well I am on Wellbutrin and Prozac. Selegiline did nothing for me, but it was the pill form(desyl)

Doc was thinking of adding abilify to help with the anhedonia. Also I heard Mirapex might be a good med for it.

Sadly, amphetamines are the only drugs that actually make me feel like myself dramatically improves my bad social problems. But I am afraid of addiction and come down issues. If only I could find a drug that acted like it that wasn't addcitive or had re-bound problems
