With me, the dex and memantine were great. Dex alone would give me rebound anxiety and depression. I also used fluoxetine and low dose amisulpride. Together that regimen brought me out of my shell. It gave me the best couple of years of my life before it started to poop out. I had less and less to say, but then I found Lamotrigine! That gave me back my 'talking tackle'. I'm not bipolar but it worked on my unipolar depression. That combination worked for 12-13 years until my stroke at the ripe old age of 45.

My only two complaints were emotional numbness and when the dex ran out I would have nothing to say. I got 3 hours out of 15mg of dex and I'd repeat it 4 times a day. The last few hours before bed sucked big time and I would take another 15mg more often than not. Now I take 2 dex (10mg) five times a day. So I've managed to drop from 75mg (most days) to 50mg since my stroke.

What's your diagnosis? If I may ask.
