> Hi, I am currently on:
> Depakote 250mg +Clonazepam .25mg +Diphenhydramine 25mg @bedtime.
> Effexor XR 12.5mg + Bupropion 12.5mg (Ok, I count granules in the capsule, crush the bupropion,etc.) +500mg L-tyrosine +500mg Vitamin C + sublingual B-complex first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Then I do a vigorous cardiovascular workout, weight lifting, stretches, etc. for an hour.
> THEN, 1G of Flaxseed oil with breakfast and then at lunch with a multivitamin and folic acid. A couple of cups of stout coffee in the afternoons with nearly an hour of bright outdoor light exposure.

Is this working well for you? How long have you been at this regime?

> Depakote works great for hostility, intraday cycling, mixed states (the best uses IMO).

Hip! Hip! Hooray!!! I have been intraday cycling or mixed-states for several months now... started with a nasty bout of paxil... I get more depressed than manic - but the neurontin definitely doesn't control the swings. With the klonopin my anxiety is virtually nill.

> Watch out for Effexormania! I am serious. I lately got up to just 25mg/day and I was getting loopy. I took 37.5mg of XR once (during my hypomania-prone part of the year) and I was intensely hypomanic within two hours and it lasted half the day! Raging and shouting on the phone-not good. BEWARE-watch the dose and your reaction to AD's.

Already there!!! HA HAHA! My pdoc is ramping me up to 225mg effexor... with that 3rd pill I am definitely loopy... ya know - out planting flowers at 3pm and 105 degrees in Texas in August! Gotta put that energy somewhere ;-)

> Neurontin settles anxiety better than any non-benzo anticonvulsant I have tried. I get some weird sfx above minimal dosages, however, and I am not even taking it all now. I have experienced good antidepressant effects from it in the past. Generally, for most folks, I think Dep+N. makes a good combo.

I think I will have to try the combo.. maybe cut back my neurontin dosage... at 2400 I was stumbling around my house..I am much better with 1200 at night and 300-600 during the day.

So tell me about the non-prescription stuff.. what are those to treat? Why the mini-dose of wellbutrin? At theraputic levels of wellbutrin, I tried to get myself arrested in an airport..can you say hostility?!

Thanks again!
