  1. So I've been receiving eTNS treatment for a few months now, using a NeuroSigma machine at the optimum dose of 5.0mA and it's great! You attach electrodes to your forehead and a direct current is passed between them. It buzzes a bit to start, but you soon get used to it. One dose is 12 hours so you sleep with it on. Can be a bit tricky if you toss and turn, but it works out. Couldn't live without it now! Expensive though - the machine was £1,000 and the electrodes £90 for 10, so insurance is a must.
  2. My clinic calls it eTNS, I use the Monarch system. Promising so far. Little at a time. You have to work up your dose incrementally to the therapeutic dose. All plugged in now for the night... Buuzzzzz!
  3. Has anyone come across Rasagiline? Activating/Sedating, half life? Richard

    I HAD a site

    Massive one, called Seratis. Had a review of practically every approved drug out there for the more common ailments as well as descriptions of the illnesses themselves. This of it like a big brother to Crazy Meds. Then the hosts pulled the plug. I retrieved the site and set it up again. This time, instead of an HTML monstrosity, it was fluently put on phpBB3, searchable and indexible. Again, the host pulled the plug with no warning. Now it's gone. All that work, gone. Will I ever recreate it? I don't know. I have a blog (http://www.flyingfelix.co.uk) but that's it for now and I'm fairly content.

    Well, I had three holidays planned. Vegas in May, Venice in August (birthday, yay!) and Orlando in October. Vegas? Not likely. Venice? I'm hopeful but pessimistic. Orlando? If we're not healing by then I'll be pessimistic about the state of the world

    That is a mighty number!
  7. Interesting. There are four potential treatments for Corona Virus already in the pipeline - come in China, one I believe in England and another in, again I think, Denmark. But more amazing is that a treatment for Lupus seems to fight the Corona virus. Fingers crossed!
  8. And he has a steering wheel stuffed down his trousers. "Mate," says the barman, "Do you realise you have a steering wheel stuffed down your trousers?" "I know," says the man, "It's been driving me nuts!"
  9. Which drug do you feel is better tolerated and most effective? Duloxetine or Venlafaxine? Same drug class, the only difference of any note that I've seen is that Duloxetine is prettier!

    Often I just look at all the pills I take - over 20 of the damn things - and think, why am I taking them? Maybe I am being poisoned by those around me? Other times I wonder about overdosing... in fact, a few times I have just binged on Dosulepin (although it just made me sleepy)
  11. @mikl_pls, thank you for your kind words! As I said, I am down to 400mg Clozapine from 450mg starting two days ago and so far no biggie. Will report back later on!
  12. I am on Clozapine and Trifluoperazine and by and large it has worked... with one major problem. The Trifluoperazine has potentiated the concentration of Clozapine in my blood stream to THREE TIMES the toxic dose. At the height of the side effects, people around me thought I was having a stroke! I have lowered the Clozapine to see if I can cope with the reduction and am considering either upping the Trifluoperazine to offset the Clozapie or introducing Amisulperide to balance things out. It is worth noting that there is VERY LITTLE research into the interactions of Clozapine and Trifluoperazine.
