>Is that question meant to relate to my condition in particular of to those of everyone else?

No, just you.

>Polypharmacy has certainly served me better than all of the monotherapeutic treatments I have tried over the last 30 years.

Yes, but it isn't saying much if it is only 15% hey?

>I recently tried to discontinue Abilify. I relapsed after two weeks. Fortunately, I was able to recapture a response within two days.

I recall you saying that.

>Is there something inherently unscientific about using more than one drug at a time to treat an illness?

No, not unscientific.

>I really don't understand on what basis polypharmacy should be discouraged.

The inadequacy of our knowledge, our ability to get it wrong, the shortcomings of the drugs?

>Is there something about the fundamental nature of mental illness that dictates that a single pharmacological action always be sufficient to treat it? Unfortunately, it would seem that the converse is true.

But how many years had you been on treatment to reach 15% 3 or 4 years ago? You get what I am trying to say? I hope you don't get me wrong. Treatment should have a better outcome than benign neglect


>Ed_Uk2010 mentioned that prazosin might work in conjunction with a norandrenergic drug to treat depression. I don't know what condition or symptoms you are trying to treat, though. I have always been unclear on this. It won't hurt to try prazosin as monotherapy, but I wouldn't forever cast the drug aside if it doesn't help treat MDD or BD.

If it could help with sleep I would be happy. People who take it sleep longer. I don't sleep deeply enough to dream or have nightmares. PTSD? Could be.

Please take this the right way. I am just interested.
