> I can't reconcile ditching an effective treatment (Remeron) at a time when my mental health is vital to my success.

i know what you mean! i started on the "pig pill" program about a month ago (so far, so good!) but i had strong reasons to try it now:

1. my meds were maxed out and my only remaining option looked like ECT (which, I learned, requires hospitalization and must be repeated about once a month forever!!)

2. i'm working at home writing a book, my teenage son (who's ADHD and is also taking the supplement, at least when we can get him to) is old enough to be pretty much on his own. my husband, who also works with me at home, is extremely supportive. and i don't have any major commitments in the next six months which require my brain (except writing!).

3. i feel i've lost so much of myself that there is not a big risk here.

i'm anxious for more "official" testing of this program; i know that "anecdotal" responses are not good evidence. in the meantime, though, i'll keep in touch with this site and let you know how it's going.
