>we seldom speak about it. Im not going to take benzos

Are all your meds/doses via the psychiatrist? Just wondering if you partly self treat. Not a criticism, just curious :) I get the impression you don't see the psych that often?

The meds are via the psychiatrist. I can make reasonable dose changes without him though. I see him every 6 weeks and he is busy. I chose him because he is not afraid to prescribe international drugs.

Do you think there is a medical solution to that anxiety? I dont thats why i dont speak about it with the psychiatrist. Well he said that no matter what meds i take i may run into anxiety from time to time.

So, do you have anxiety problems most of the time or just occasionally?

How does the anxiety respond to SSRIs rather than venlafaxine? Have you tried a few?

Half of the time maybe. Its not most of the time but it is more often than occasionally

SSRI i responded to sertra÷ine at a low dosage but it gave me akathisia. I tried some of the new ones but i aborted. Once i was suicidal.

Look into acetyl-l-carnitine (ALC). It is being studied closely for use in depression by employing randomized controlled trials (RCT).

How do you find tea (either black tea or green tea)?

Tea does seem to be calming compared to coffee, while also improving attention.

Many people here drink loads of black tea.

Was there any indication whether psychosis was a common or a rare event? I'd like to take a quick look at your source of information. I have no reason to disbelieve that psychosis is possible, but I would like to know the frequency at which this occurs.

Hi,

Are the supplements expensive?

I drink about five cups of tea a day, so a bit more than you! Cheaper and nicer than taking additional tablets.

Tea seems to have a positive effect on mental well-being, unless you drink ridiculous quantities or something. I assume it's the combination of L-theanine, minimal amounts of caffeine and maybe the antioxidants. I don't much like green tea though.

It is quite pricey, yes. I take alot of stuff. I am more of a coffee consumer rather than tea. There is this organic coffee latte that tastes so delicious:)

What's the caffeine content of the product you take, and what time of day do you take it?

I am so OCDish right now.. I ran out of Taurine today.

I may approach my doctor about Memantine.

Hi,

The caffeine content is likely to be very low... but since you're taking it in the morning, it shouldn't cause insomnia even if the caffeine content was high.

I Scott,

how you feeling? It seems that things have mellowed out at least a bit for you. I remember when i came off MAOI and i wasnt even on them for very long but i had alot of trouble. You were taking it for years right? I have learned that you dont say "have been taking" if the time and the action is finished. Still learning a lot.

So i am about to order this Acetyl L Carnitine. No risk no fun. I am having pretty good success with some ingredient in blueberries. Dont ask me why. Maybe you can look into this?

I am very motivated to do sports again which is awesome and it gives me some more antidepressant activity than just the meds and the blueberries alone. I also endorse low dose lithium.

Take care
