Hey Rick. Actually, I was the N=1 for this trial, but donŐt feel bad, you are also an N = 1.

And I do take klonopin also. Mostly 2mg to sleep, but also 1/2-1mg if I feel anxious or spacey. Yesterday I started with 50mg provigil--instead of the 25 I had intended, so I also took 1mg of klonopin.

To be honest about provigal vs. adrafinil, in some sense I'd rather adrafinil work, because it is an antidepressant, and maybe I could get off the nardil. Nardil doesn't really bother me, it does make me tired in the afternoon, no matter what time I take it; also combining other meds would just be a bit simplier. Actually, you truly ARE your own study, because our symptoms differ so much.

My depression feels so physiological at this point, although there are things (people) that can trigger it.(e.g., minor failures, hurt, at times). I am so much stronger though, than I used to be emotionally. But it sits in my chest even when things seem excellent. The Nardil by itself was fine until about this January. I am using vicidin, if I feel very depressed or very premenstrual, but still not more than 1/2 pill per day. My therapist and pdoc are not happy, but I really don't care, but do hope that one of these other meds will eliminate the need for it, since I know it's a risk. I don't want to go sneaking around for it when I run out of my rather large supply. (A pdoc gave me a prescription for 60 x 2--At a half a pill a 5 or 6 days a month, that's a couple of years. And I do remember (I think it was you?) your experience, so I try not to forget how dangerous it can be.

I hardly got any sleep last night, then had to get up and put in a couple of hours of hard work. I'm about ready for a nap, then I will get up and work again. That is one of the real advantages for me of owning my own business; the disadvantage is always being responsible for everything!

Well, always glad to get your feedback. Thanks for your support; I'll let you know how this WF N is doing, as the trial proceeds. Shellie
