> I guess I'm not going to quit taking it afterall. I just found out that my insurance shipped my three month supply of Marplan on Sat (not in 2 weeks like they told me). There is nothing I can do now so I guess I'm staying on it. And yes, I will probably try adding another drug to it. Either lamictal or deplin (if he lets me).

When did the derealization start? Was it already a part of your depression which has simply got worse because Marplan isn't working, or do you think Marplan is actually causing it?

Are you taking anything else, e.g. alcohol or cannabis? These can cause derealization. Mind you, so can antidepressants.

Do you think your pdoc is willing enough to treat your depression/anxiety more aggressively? And if so, are you willing to take the 'aggressive' treatment? You may well need more than Lamictal or Deplin. I myself GOT derealization from Lamictal. Was like drifting through mist every day. But we're all different I guess.

I bet a tricyclic would stomp out the derealization, especially one of the more NRI type ones. Provigil certainly would, for a while at least. A nootropic supplement could also do wonders - I take 2 myself, idebenone & vinpocetine.

Why not start a new thread explaining your exact current situation, asking what might help the derealization? Bet you'd get a few responces at least.

I know what this symptom/side effect feels like. I've had it on & off for years. I know its hell but something will snap you out of it.

Best of luck mate.
