Iso,
Your prairie days sound ghastly. Glad you're out of there. I can relate to what you said about the bleak, dark and violent place you go into without the meds. Before I started ADs lo these many years ago I was depressed certainly, but it didn't have the haunted spooky crazy quality it now has when I try to stop. BTW, is Adrafinal considered a pstim? I thought it was more in the norepineprine vs. dopamine camp. At any rate, if it worked that well in reducing the paxil withdrawal blues, then it's a real exciting find. The zaps and whooshes have been said to be serotonin-related. It makes me wonder if the NE is acting as a neuro protectant somehow, or perhaps NE is what you best respond to?

I recently gave Adrafinal a try, hoping to add a little zip to a recent vegetative depression. Unfortunately, it caused a great deal of the 'inner tension' side effect and started switching me into an agitated depression with alot of crying and wringing of hands. I guess Bipolar II's really shouldn't go there, but I do so wish for something that would give me that nice focussed calm motivated feeling (gee, kinda like my meth days, in fact). I'm currently on remeron, lithium, klonopin and ambien. I'm not depressed, but I'm getting slow and porky. Any ideas out there would be appreciated. - Barbara
