Hi Scott/Linkadge

Link is in Canada, with me, and I am about to start a trial with Moclobemide, which worked amazing for me with high-dose benzo's, bromazapam in particular, and am going to try to control some of the agitation, hyper-arousal with a mood stabalizer, as we go. Do you think this would be a good option for Linkadge? It is MAJOR pro-sexual, and I have dead in that area for almost 15 years. I am not sure what Linkadge's situation is like?

Sorry Linkadge, am not trying to hijack your thread. Have you ever been on Mannerix(sp?)/Moclobemide? It really, really is pro-motivational, I just have to be careful of the hypomania. I am REALLY sick and tired of the amotivational, desexualizing properties of the usual SSRI/SNRI routes. Honestly, I can deal much,much better with good hypomania, rather than just "blaahhhh", irritability, and flattening of SSRI/SNRI's. Link, you said you use Niacin. Have you ever tried a stack of Niacin, B1, and B2? I use that with lethicin/choline..which REALLY chills me out...a nice, smooth ride.
