Thanks Jost, I truely respect you opinion.

Haha, is it possible to have atypical-atypical depression? By this, I mean that I seem to fit both typical and atypical categories, sometimes concurrently. I've alllways been one to sleep an extreme amount when depressed, however, the last few months I wasn't sleeping much at all, and now I am again. I don't have emotional eating tendencies, so I can't say that I ever noticeably overeat or undereat when depressed.

I know I shouldn't make any important decisions right now. I'd definitely regret such a life-altering choice down the road.

I like your ideas... do you happen to have a prescription pad in your back pocket you'd care to use?! :) Xanax and Provigil (I'm never gonna get this one though!) are pretty mild in my opinion, and happen to be basically the only meds I've ever had success with and tolerated. But if I were to try either EMSAM or Parnate (hesitant of this one), plus get decent sleep, I may not need a stimulant, although it would be nice.

As for food restrictions... I can't believe people complain about this! If I had the potential to rid my depression, I'd eat or not eat annnything! I'd gladly vow to memorize all contraindicated meds, and go even go without pain medication, cough syrup, ect., to avoid the possibility. I do understand the doctor's concern regarding this issue though.

I just got my new books for next week, including 2 of interest, pharmacology and psychiatry (not the most current resource though, published in 1998!). Maybe I'll read up a little, then think of citing those as information sources, rather than the internet. The internet is a little shady and untrustworthy in my opinion. (I honestly do value the info I get here and other sites, but one has to be careful) I wouldn't really like it if a patient came in quoting message boards of all things. (It's somewhat disrespectful, IMO.)

Thanks again to all who read and respond to my lengthy posts! :)
