Some of us, like you and I, are lucky to have, shall we say, 'liberal' minded psychiatrists, who are open to patient's suggestions. Mine has addressed this with me, and is like "..I don't do this with ANY other patient, you know Mr. Jay!!"...and maybe, you or I have a certain type of personality that is comfortable being quite assertive. I have been fired by a few psychiatrists because of this!

But, for some, (many??) this is not the case. We HAVE to understand that. Plus, we can't diagnose by proxy. Suggestions, sure, but we are limited in that we don't quite know the interpersonal angle of what another patient is composed about via the internet. There are MANY behavioural effects of neurotransmitters (NT's), and they are NOT all universal.

So, let's let Linkadge go where and how he wishes, and what he is comfortable with. It may take some time for him to develop more of a dynamic relationship with his pdoc.

One area, and I know you aren't keen on, we can suggest is some alternative and complimentary treatments that even top researchers are looking into.

IMHO, a full-on, norepinephrine approach ignores some NT's that MAY be important, including cholinergic, gaba, and some different approaches to serotonin, and as well as the cannabinoid system.

Let's just be gentle, kind (like you are Scott...very kind, IMHO) and take our time.
