So as for modafinil,,,
Last year, I had brought up the thought of adding on modafinil as an adjunctive drug for my fluoxetine to my awesome psychiatrist. He thought it seemed to be a good idea, but explained to me of that rare side effect of a rash that can be very serious,,, so that kinda pushed me away from that idea.

But now as I have been educating myself up on sleep disorders, I have read that modafinil is used to treat DSPD (Delayed Sleep-Wake Pattern Disorder), of which I have.
I read thru all the reviews on drugs.com and there were a great percentage that had very favorable responses to modafinil. Didn't read any issues with a rash. Makes me feel confident in trying it.
I have an appointment to discuss with doctor on Tuesday.

I took fluoxetine for 29-1/2 years before switching over to Pristiq (desvenlafaxine), which is not "cutting the mustard". So I'm tapering off that and am considering Trintellix or Viibryd.
I'm also considering starting the Spravato treatments back up now that my Savings Card renewed at the beginning of the new year.

I'm like the previous poster, Pete, in that I've tried every vitamin, mineral, and supplement under the sun, and I just never notice anything.
The only vitamin I 100% strongly believe in is Vitamin C, because I have SEEN that it works!
Years ago, as I was actively playing drums in my punk rock bands, I was a very hard-hitting drummer that would come home with a huge bruise from also hitting my leg. Megadose Vitamin C cleared that right up.

The recent studies showing that there weren't many natural supplements that proved to be beneficial to mental health except for a few convinced me to add back in some quality fish oil - I actually got my psychiatrist to prescribed Vescepa (pure prescription EPA) that I take daily along with vitamin C and magnesium threonate, and when I can wake up in time to take it, dextroamphetamine.

I'm quite surprised there hasn't been more discussion of ketamine or esketamine (Spravato) on this message board!

I guess Dr. Bob is gonna have to start a "Psychedelics" board!
