A few weeks ago I tried a Metabolife candy bar available in the Wal*Mart pharmacy section. It has ephedra in it. A few hours later I was totally amazed at how good I felt. Not just energy, but good mood and interest too. I went to the health food store to explore this some more, but I was counseled by the storekeeper that ehpedra is not for longterm use and can create more problems than it fixes if used continuously. So I opted to pass it by. But it did at least provide me the clues to point me in the right direction...away from serotonin meds and toward norepinephrine meds. It could indeed, in my opinion, be an interesting test for someone to see how they respond to a NE stimulant before getting committed to a long trial of a NE med.

That one candy bar was actually so good in squashing my longstanding symptoms, I think I could do well by taking a quarter of a candy bar perhaps twice a day. It's not something I'm going to rush out and do today, but at least I know in the back of my mind a simple OTC remedy for symptoms of anhedonia, lack of energy, lack of motivation.
