Hi Vince,

Getting Marplan up here is taking forever for you. My understanding is that through the 'special access program', the govt body dealing with importation of non-Canadian meds, you need to be assessed in terms of need, correct? So just simply requesting a med we dont have in distribution from another country isn't good enough I think. I think you have to show serious need and failure at available meds here in Canada before you can be considered...this is your case not mine since I havent tried every med out there and dont even have a pdoc. I think my chances are next to nil for Marplan. But thats ok, Nardil is very effective for me, at least for now. I am patient with the meds that I take when I take them...but I am always looking out for options...just in my nature I guess.

Vince that sensation of pins and needles you mention on Clomipramine sounds like NE stimulatory effect to me man...why does it bother you?...I enjoyed that part of nardil, I still have it to a subtle extent. It reminds me it's working still, the only positive physical reminder.

Nortrip and desip have always interested me, as well as doxypin. I'm toying with augment options I can take that wont mezmorize my family doctor like a deer in headlights. He doesnt like the idea of maoi+tca regardless of the studies I show him. So i'm using supplements like tyrosine, 5htp and about to start mucuna pruriens for extra dopamine...of course in very small doses because of the maoi interaction.

My sleep is alot better now that I have been given seroquel. I also take scullcap extract (works like a benzo) to relax me until seroquel puts me out. Usually 5-6h is typical but I will up the dose to 50mg i'm sure shortly.

I still want to try gabapentin or especially lyrica for sleep...I'm also thinking about the idea of getting multiple dr's, until I get a pdoc, but I'm not sure it's a good idea...what happens if they find out? Like one is rx'n nardil for me but hates benzo's...so I get a benzo from another then another I get a tca or something from unknowing i'm on nardil LOL jesus man this is sneaky sh*t here...lol...my conscience would eat me up. I dont know if lieing like that is a good idea despite the lack of proper treatment dealing with family dr's.

anyway,
take care Vince...try to get some enjoyment in your life also man...anything to smile and laugh ya know
