> I'm still trying to find something that will provide enough relief that I"m actually functional again. I'm just not. It's been suggested that psychostimulants might be a part of the answer, and at this point I'm ready to look into them more closely, but worry that they'll up my anxiety too much. So, I'm coming to the experts:

It depends Racer, on the dosage, your make up. Dexedrine is, well 'speed' to put it mildly, while this CAN calm many who have hyperactive minds, for others it can cause avxiety.

Interestingly I have read of SEVERAL studies where acutely manic patients, who after not responding to an acute dose of Lithiun, became calmer with the introduction of Dextroamphetamine, a kinda brain organisation effect I guess, so go figure.

As always start low and go low.

Cheers
