Good early Depression results.
After decades on a/d s and benzos for depression and anxiety i have come across a promising medication, moclobemide.

Many depressed people mix anti/deps with benzos ,as I did,and when they try and reduce the benzo get withdrawal symptoms which makes the other drug look bad.
As a general rule, benzo reduction needs to be very slow and this is tough if you are feeling realy bad.

i am not sure if Moclobomide is available in the U.S. It is stimulating, but many of us would prefer this to extreme lathargy and disinterest in everything.....Big Grin HNY.

Thanks for sharing this, Mr. W. I just started on a benzo as a supplement to my other anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds. Reading about the side-effects and withdrawals makes me take it sparingly and reluctantly. I'll have to see what my Doc thinks about Moclobomide, although I've been on and off so many different meds in the past 6 months I'm reluctant to stir up the brain chemicals again!

Oh...strike that. According to Wikipedia it's not approved for use in the US.

RE: Good early Depression results.
I'm sure I've asked you this before, but have you checked your testosterone? Restoring my testosterone levels to the youthful levels I had when I first formulated my peculiarly fucked up dismal world view some 30 years ago completely alleviated my decades long depression. Didn't bother me then, why should it bother me now?

My doc checked my testosterone and thyroid levels and both seemed to be operating correctly. Thing is, to me, I don't feel very testosterony.

Get your numbers, fool. Depending on the lab the "normal" testosterone range from, say, LabCorps is like 241-850 ng/dl. That's the mean testosterone they've measured in their lab plus or minus 2 standard deviations. Don't matter if it was from some 16 yo young dumb and full of cum or a 96 yo who knew better. Testosterone replacement therapy alleviated a decades long depression in me.

RE: Good early Depression results.
It's actually really expensive and difficult to get accurate testing on hormone levels. There are a number of other factors that come into it other than the amount of testosterone like levels of sex hormone binding globulin, 5 alpha reductase, aromatase enzymes. People who take steroids know more about this stuff. They need to take oestrogen/aromatase inhibitors too. If you have more testosterone more will get converted to oestrogen via aromatase or DHT via 5-AR. Lots of DHT can cause prostate problems (more of a problem in older people) also one of the causes of male pattern baldness.

Not available in the U.S..
Doest that mean its dangerous, works too well, or the profit margin is too low?

G.M. Is that a blood test or do you do it in the little room with the porn mags?Wink

Yeah, you're right.
She's definitely hot and I'm a little reluctant to schedule a "full" physical with her. Shy
