Thanks, Creepy. I'm still working on a link Conundrum posted. Have you seen that? (Seems I posted this question twice accidentally.)

Based on my experience, the amount of relief is fleeting. Seems I do best with some sort of dopamine agonist on board--at least so far. That I had a disastrous trial of Abilify also suggests to me that dopamine is part of my treatment.

I did read that 6mg of emsam is heavier on the dopamine and the ratio diminishes at 9 and up. (I was also told by one of the mentioned docs that emsam might work, and if not, then maoi. Obviously I'm balking, and my own pdoc isn't supportive--he'd want a complete washout, I have a dependent child.... My experience of discontinuation syndrome can be disabling.)

O.K. TMI :)

How have you been?
