>too. I've seen many things posted at this site that I find absolutely hair curling.

So why choose this thread to speak up about? I was simply providing information that may be valuable to you, house, or others reading the thread. I doubt anyone would consider the intention of my post to support self-medication. If I knew house was thinking of self-medicating I absolutely would have spoken out about getting to an expert pdoc -- and I've done this in several of my posts in the past. I'm sure there are people here who would use potentially dangerous combinations of drugs on their own, but why should this keep me and others from providing information to those who are under the care of a good pdoc. I know many expert pdocs use this combination, and I even provided a link for you to the tips section about this.

>up the appropriate forms by the second hospitalization. Do you want to be responsible for putting bad ideas into the heads of people with impaired judgement? Somebodys cerebral bleed is mighty bad karma to bring down on

'Scuse *me* but I do think this is a harsh and unfair accusation. I really can't see how my post does anything more than provide information. However then, what about the good karma from giving someone information to take to their doctor that leads to a "cocktail" that improves their quality of life. Someone else in this thread said it better, but the risk of suicide in an ongoing depression is far greater than the risk of abusing potentially invaluable information.

>yourself. Watch what you say and say it appropriately. "You should ask your doctor about..." is the easiest form of this. It's called an admonition in the trade . It sets

Are you a doctor yourself? In any event, if I thought house was self-medicating I would have urged him to get to an expert pdoc. As a contributer I make the presumption that the people I post to are under the care of their pdoc (unless I know otherwise) and as a patient I intelligently sift through the posts and do research and then ask my own pdoc to determine what may or may not be true. Are all of *your* posts on psycho-babble phrased "you should ask your doctor about.."? I would hate to think you don't live up to your own standard...

> I think that if you ask Dr. Goldberg about this whole issue he'll back me up.

Actually, in the post I referenced before,

http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/20020525/msgs/107593.html

he didn't say "you should ask your doctor about.." Probably because he made the presumption that people on this site are under the care of a pdoc and have read the FAQ -- have you read it?

Jon

p.s. This is not an insult, but you may want to ask yourself just how "fabulous" your own pdoc is. There is a difference between a nice and knowledgeable pdoc and a "best of the best" pdoc. The "best of the best" would not call the combination of an MAOI + stimulant absurd when it is apropriate.
