Sounds really good Nevaeh. I'm glad that this is working for you. What AD are you on?

I take my big dose of one of my AD's in the morning and a smaller dose of it in the evening - unfortunately I haven't found the same sort of response as you've had. I do envy that you are feeling less numb! Take care and may the good feelings last!

Hi there,

I was also on fluoxetine but unfortunately it didn't have any effect on me. I'm currently on a cocktail of drugs... Venlafaxine, Mirtazapine, Lithium and Flupentixol which, I have to admit are having a positive effect (at least at the moment they are :D - I'm a bit up and down at the mo and a couple of weeks ago was right on the edge - eek!).

Take care!
Honey
