Hi, Dek.

> Wouldn't it be more likely for ECT to help with intrusive thought processes than anhedonia?

My understanding from the ECT promotional literature is that it does NOT help with intrusive thoughts or schizophrenic symptoms or mania but does help with more classic depressive symptoms (when it helps at all).

> Which brings stimulants to mind. But if you take all that stuff you can end up simply feeling unwell, on top of whatever else you have.

Yeah. Does that happen even with Provigil? Does anyone know? I.e., does Provigil eventually result in tolerance and after-crash?

Then again, I can't see even my fruitcake pdoc prescribing BOTH an opioid and Provigil at the same time.
