Hi Chris,

Thanks for your interest and suggestion.

I did try Mirapex twice and the nausea/flu like
sypmtoms were just too much to deal with.

Since the Lamictal has gotton me past the major
depression, I am primarily targeting the dysthymia,
and at this point how I weigh qualitity of life with
respects to dealing with med side effects is
a different scenario. If I was still having major
depressive symptoms, I would give Mirapex a longer
trial. BTW, I wish Mirapex was cheaper for those
of you using it sucessfully.

Thanks
-john

I tried Mirapex and it worked wonders for the ongoing anhedonia/apathy that always seemed to linger. I would think that it would also help with dysthmia. I take it along with Nortriptyline and Zyprexa without any side effects at all. Some peolpe get naseau on it but that didn't affect me.
