>so rarely been "normal" in my life! I wait about three weeks before I reduce the Parnate by 10mg and try to really evaluate my mood before I do.

... at what dose did your acne really get worse and how is it doing now that you have gone down so much? ....
... i am thinking about going swimming again, it might have had a good effect on my acne (not parnate related), i don't remember exactly...

... oh actually my friend pointed out that for him and i've found for myself as well -- changing your sleeping tends to be really bad -- and parnate sure can keep you up sometimes... not to mention that desire to socialize and do things...
... and of course as soon as you get that antidepressant socialize + libido effect the last thing you want is a dermatological problem (i've actually got four now, though none serious -- possibly from valporate)...

... i actually tried taking a look at a dermatology website to diagnose myself, but... i just could not stand looking through all of those disgusting pictures (yuck!)... so much for a career in medicine for me :(

... perhaps if i could get my doc to let me take lamictal i could get the rash and then i really would be dermatology boy :)

> I'm hoping to start therapy again soon and hopefully she can help me evaluate my moods a bit more.

how about if i ask you "how would you therapist help you evaluate your moods" and then you could just take that answer and ask it yourself? :)
perhaps keep a mood chart with journal entries

... btw you must have a good idea what works well and what doesn't for acne... what would you recommend? i think tretonin (sp?) was probably the best ... though i hear accutane works quite well (between liver problems and depression, that's one i aint touchin)

hope the lamictal kicks in soon
