Looking For Anyone With Deplin Experience
Posted 13 June 2008 - 06:46 PM
Any and all comments appreciated. Much love to everyone out there who has to deal with this kind of crap. TT
Current Meds: Lexapro ( again ) 10mg/AM Deplin 7.5mg/AM Remeron 45mg/PM Klonopin 1mg as needed.
Previous Meds: Lexapro ( worked for a long time before it died ) Celexa ( same as Lex ) Wellbutrin ( as a booster, gave me panic attacks ) Zoloft ( super sick, couldn't even make it a month ) Prozac ( a couple days in it gave me a continuous intense panic attack my meds-doc ignored 3 pages and I almost ended up in the psych ward. His boss saved me with 2mg of Ativan every 4 hours for 2 days )

Over one half of the general population is compromised in it's ability to break down folic acid into L-methylfolate (MTHFR C->T polymorphs) and is even higher in people who suffer from depression15, 16.
So maybe your ability to break down folic acid isn't compromised?
Do not construe anything I say as medical advice - I just have a Philosophy degree.

The next month I didn't take it, because insurance does not usually cover it, and boy, did I notice the difference! Everything went back to flat. So now I make sure I budget for it (approximately $60 for 1 mo/supply).
My p-doc said that anecdotal reports are that this drug is more noticeably effective in women than men, because women have issues with taking in and retaining adequate levels of folic acid, similar to what they are now finding in people with depression.
Maybe your folic acid levels are already just fine and the Deplin is, therefore, ineffective?
