thanks tshol. not sure how i feel this morning. i have been on antidepressants constantly for 20 years cos with out them im suicidal within a fornight so i would nt call that low grade depression. i understand that with medication this is what it looks like. tried to get everything out but no mention on bp. pdoc upped my 40mg prozac to 60mg a day and has added tegretol. I am also on propanalol and zopiclone. He said the tegretol should help with extreme irritability/ rage i experience. Heres hoping!
