5. I looked at the book and I'm confused

Seeing the word "shock". The book doesn't appear to specifically address ECT (that I could find).

I've taken Deplin as a non-side effect booster to the rest of the drugs in my cocktail. It is essentially a food supplement and for me it was totally useless. And it was very expensive. My psych doc said to quit taking it and put me on this nasty anti-psychotic. So, now my cocktail is back to 4 different drugs.

Yea, I do Xanax. I take it more to counter the side effects of the addiction to the drug. I tried to go cold turkey off Xanax and my body went into a full withdrawal that really fucked me up. The idea behind an anti-anxiety drug is the drug you take for depression will reduce the panic/anxiety attacks - hence reducing the need for drugs like Xanax.

Thanks for your input. I really appreciate it.
