> Scott, thanks, and I thought I would add in some of my other thoughts also, and in particular to your situation.

Jay. I had a similar experience and have been on BZD monotherapy for several years now having lost much of the last 15 or so years trying to "make" every conceiveable form of AD or combo ssri and BZD, or anticonvulsant/AD/BZD , etc, work for me. I ended up feeling like a square peg trying to be put into a round hole.
