hi, irene,:)

thanks! you're sweet, too! i'm glad you and i got the opportunity to talk! it's been a pleasure. and i'm very glad you asked me to help with the med situation!

that's great news that your dog is doing well. i'm so happy for you! :)

> I did not take that pet sitting job. I started freaking about it all and just called and quit before I ever started.

i read that in your post. hey, you ain't the only one that's ever backed out of jobs, trust me. :-)

my suggestion for you for depression, hands down, would be lamictal. it is one of the best antidepressants on the market, and you haven't tried it yet. i know some people get the lamictal rash, but there are ways to reduce its likelihood, such as increasing the dosage slowly, i think. i'll have to look into that. and sometimes ppl who get a rash at the beginning find that it later goes away.

i would try this first by itself before considering an ADD augmentor. you may find that your concentration problems, etc. are taken care of. if not, we can look into a good med for that later. or, if you wish to stay on the ritalin, that's fine, too.

<Klonopin: .5mg-whatever as needed. It helps a lot when I get anxious. I think I should take this on a regular basis but my memory is so shot like my Mother who had three strokes I am afraid to take too many bezo's. I did recently read that Klonopin does not have much affect on memory though.

when taken on a daily basis, you should have minimal, if any, memory problems. i wouldn't worry about this with klonopin.

i would drop the amulsipride, as you aren't doing well on it and are having side effects.

hope this helps! please let me know what you decide and keep me posted!! take good care of yourself, irene, you are very nice, and i'm in your corner!

take care! :-)
