1) 3X, 12.5mg taken together, since Dec 2000, no longer are enough. Taken upon awakening they had an effect in 45 minutes. They would remove all depression and the strong sickness behavior from the inflammatory cytokines. In particular, the peculiar neuroenhancing stimulant effect it produced in me disappeared. Now it has a partial Mood Brightening and Anti-Depressant effect lasting in an hour that last only 4 hours. I need to repeat by taking one or more every 4-5 hours the rest of the day depending on how active I need to be. During its first three years it had an effect on me presumably like the one described for Ketamine.
2) I am not open to experimenting with any of the drugs available here since I just about have tried all of them and the suffering and illness they have produced is great. I left out mentioning before that I also went through an ECT series in Miami. It did
not produce any effect at all, but at least did not affect my memory.
3) SNRIs! I force took Effexor for 4-1/2 months with no benefit. Had me completely incapacitated, not able to read, in bed or in a lean-to couch, TV or trouble sleep all the way.
N.B. I await the market availability of Valdoxan (agomelatine) but do not know if it will be effective. It's mode of action is different from Stablon in being an agonist at MT(1) & MT(2) receptors of the melatonergic system and putative 'rapid regulation of the sleep-wake cycle'. But it key, in my opinion, lies in its antagonistic activity at the 5-HT(2c)receptor. This would be another novel approach, different from Stablon although produced by the same pharmaceutical; Servier Laboratoires--it my not work on me. Antidepressants are sold over most the world without the need for a prescription by asking the pharmacist. That's how I get my Stablon and will soon Valdoxan, but as mentioned there is no assurance that it will work for me. Please note!! I made this consultation to search for an augmenter of Stablon that would bring it back to its former just about miraculous effectiveness. I have searched for years and have not found mention of any. However, I am not fluent in French and have been investigated in universe. To repeat, my question is about and augmenting, reinforcing. I have not heard either of any combinations but have experimented with some of my own, but to no avail.
It pleases me to share this information with you. By your picture you seem like a young fellow. The monoamine theory of depression is invalid it is only the financial interest of the big pharmaceutical that still try to keep it alive.

, to exchange views on theories of neurogenesis of depression. Is it an immune disease? Glial cells inflammatory citokines? No! That only produces the somatic sickness part. If this is a mind-body problems had can Ketamine (a chemical) remove depression instantly? But mind is involved, the mood part involves feelings and we can only feel in the Mind and not in the Brain.
