Pleasure Zana!

Unless you have BP I, manic episodes or psychotic depression I'd guess the Seroquel is largely acting as a sedative and serotonin/adrenaline receptor blocker.

But Klonopin and Remeron are sedatives too, and Remeron blocks some of the same receptors (the Remeron may, as you say, be preventing you getting agitated on the Pristiq by blocking the relevant serotonin receptors).

Perhaps Seroquel would be the med you'd miss the least?

There's a lot of controversy about Gabapentin's use in psychiatry too, and apparently not much convincing evidence that it actually achieves anything.

And maybe if you lowered your intake of sedative meds you wouldn't need a stimulant like Provigil?

Can any of our psychopharmacological experts advise?
