> I am not depressed any longer, I don't think, but am acutely aware that whatever I start I probably won't be able to follow through on, and this cycle will continue. Rather than get all psyched about doing this and that I am alternately taking small bites or not doing anything at all. But mainly I am trying to get some medical help - wading through doctors and insurance isn't fun, is it?

Hi PV,

Man, I know what you mean about just doing things in small bites or not at all, that's the mode I am in, and that's what I was hoping the Strattera would help with. And now I am not very confident about that. Anyway, as to Mirapex, initially I had thought it was helping slightly. I was started on .25 mgs, it was increased to 1 mg but when it was increased I began having difficulty swallowing at night after I took my nightly 3 mgs of Risperdal (I am on one hell of a cocktail, very treatment resistant atypical depression along with other fun things.) So they decreased it back to .25 but I am thinking of dropping that when I see my docs next because of adding the Strattera and trying not to keep adding on more and more drugs. So that is my experience, hope this helps,

Maggie

Actually, now that I think about it, the dosages may be .025 mgs and .1 mgs, I'm not sure exactly, sorry...
