It's really posible that Provigil may help you: but I feel I should add the proviso that the differences between individuals are far greater that their shared similarities when it comes to psychotropic meds. I do, however, agree with you about Zyprexa: I detest it. Fortunately, my p-doc listens when I tell him things AND is an astute observer. He saw how emotionally and cognitively flat Zyprexa made me and we switched to Serequel (a low dose at that.) After thirteen years on Depakote, I am finally pressing, respectfully, but insistently, to have it titrated down, replacing it with Zonegran. Be your own advocate!

I can't comment on the substance abuse except to say that when I referred a dear friend (and a brilliant artist) to a doctor for bi-polar disorder, he was unable to help her due to her past (not present) abuse problems. Nevertheless, I urge you to continue your struggle.

One last insignificant coincidence: my youngest brother got his Ph.D. last summer and now works at U Penn--Erie. I'm sure you're at Mother Ship, but the "small world" feeling always tickles me.

sincerely,

Smithfrau
