Scott, no experience with it yet. I've had some allergic skin things happen to me in the previous several years that make me leary of it, and pdoc doesn't want to mess with it given my relatively stable state. What seems to be key to that is drastically reduced dosage of antidepressants, I'm down to just about 300 micrograms of Celexa every day (.3mg liquid). Any more and I get wiggy, if I stop I start getting GAD/panic symptoms. So, the SSRI is purely for anxiety. I also take 5mg of Stratterra when I start getting into the low part of my 2-3 week cycles and it seems to work for that. When I feel myself getting a little high I just add a little more Depakote. It seems to work. Thanks for your concern!
