Re: Going Off Parnate...Wellbutrin Poop Out Remedy?

Hi Ron -- Thanks for your suggestions.

I have been studying supplements off and on for years and after the wellbutrin stopped working as effectively, the only thing that sent me into a true remission again was the addition of some supploements that boosted both serotonin and dopamine, though th effect only lasted 3 days.

My latest angle of attack (once I finish washing out from parnate) is to go back on the wellbutrin, augmented by up to 1600mg SAM-e, and if it helps, I'll also add the other supplements that boosted my mood so much before. I've read good things about SAM-e and am keeping my fingers tightly crossed that it works for me as well as those other supplements did.

I did try augmenting with stimulents -- provigil, nuvigil and vyvanse. In hindsight, provigil was the best of these, helping my mood and alertness without adding much anxiety, whereas the nuvigil and vyvanse both gave me added anxiety. However, I've just started on Armour Thyroid, and I'm hoping that will take the place of a stimulent, though I'd certainly be willing to go back on the provigil if necessary.

After the horrible experience I had with Parnate, I'm just not in the mood to try an MAOI again. Virtualy everything in my typical diet has some forbidden substance in it and I'm just not willing to put up with the weight gain and anorgasma from Nardil -- both would make me even more depressed.

I have also been taking care to take fish oil and krill oil, along with a b-complex that contains the p5p form of b6 and a sublingual preparation of the correct form of b12. I also take 10,000 iu of vitamin D each day, along with a liquid multivitamin that's more easily absorbed into my system.

I take a good amount of folic acid as well, so I'm wondering how much deplin would actuallly help the wellbutrin work. Know anyone with any experience with deplin?
