> Hi Jay,

Hey Linkadge. I am glad you got back, and I honestly hope you are feeling good.

> I am on the wait list. My doctor says expect to be on that wait list for 2+ years.

If you move down here to Niagara, I have gotten clients to a pdoc in 3-4 months, average. (Through their gp of course.) Smaller population density...easier access to services. If you'd be willing to go out of town say once a month? Have you told your doctor you are suicidal? (Even if you aren't, it will get you services faster.

> As far as combinations (mood stabilizers etc) I've been there. I am currently taking lithium, but have taken tegretol, depakote, lamotrigine etc.

But there are others..like Lyrica, Neurontin. Combinations with benzos? Those will dissipate suicidal feelings quite well, until you are used of the antidepressant.

I GET that Linkadge...I have been there many times. with the restlessness and suicidality. Again, benzos will kill the edge. You have to explain this to your doctor. Benzos are a standard, in starting out antidepressants. Lorazepam is like lightning...it changes night to day. You have to inform your doctor of the suicidal thoughts with starting a.d's.

Just IMHO....(and yes, I am quite bossy with my doctors. It's my body...my choice :)
