> Interesting reading, gentlemen. Do you know if this is prescribed off-label much in Australia, G? How are things otherwise?

Hey papillon. I think cost may be an issue with off-label use, since a monthly script can set you back 100$+. Otherwise, I can't really answer your question - one woman I spoke to knew someone in her clinic who used it in Parkinson's patients; my personal psychiatrist had never heard of it .. neither had my GP, but he was willing to prescribe it (though I declined due to not wanting to go behind my psychiatrist's back).

I'm okay, otherwise. Not as despairingly depressed as I was. I'm taking a very low dose of Parnate which helps me socialize and do some basic things during the day, which I'm thankful for, but it's scary to see how inert and dysfunctional I was in comparison. Sleep, however, is a major problem. If I don't take zopiclone I'm literally up the entire night, and if I do take it, I'm hit by rebound depression the next evening. I hope my psychiatrist has a solution at our next appointment.

How is everything with you?

Thanks for your concern, by the way, it is appreciated.
