Not any better on the side effects today, if that's what it is. Considering my lifelong struggle with depression, I'm not sure. Difference is that there's not even a hint of that winding road of hopelessness.

I checked this med out in other online forums. Most common side effects are none, neausea and farts. None of the above.

I'm used to riding out depressive episodes, if any consolation. But - aw crap - this is really starting to bother me. For now, I'll just keep posting to get it off my chest.

Thanks G. Needed that. Quality of this episode is subtly different from previous. Not so much that I'm "tired", just feel I can't get my @$$ in gear. Right now, just talking about it helps some.

I've got a lot of experience riding out depression, but I'd appreciate any input from those who have experience with this kind. (Already on Paxil, btw, and very compliant with all my meds outta habit)

Seem to be doing okay now, 11 days into it. Seems more to me the depressive stuff was likely my usual cycle. Appreciate the support and the PMs guys.

Lancer,

You're a pioneer and a hero! Hang onto that truth.

lol...thank you Jude, but I prefer the title "Lab Rat" and will probably get on CafePress to make up a tee that say that! ;-)

...and I guess with the storm coming that makes you...a snowman?

Okeydokey, third draw today. Got a Snoopy BandAid, btw! Results are in from the baseline (fasting) draw. I'm happy to report these are My Worst Results Ever (worse than even the prequalification draw):

VL: 87100
CD4: 33/2.5% (Normal is about 40%. I think we lost Larry and Moe since the last time, a quote from the study admin. Despite my smartass comments, I have to admit the pctg is the first time I've been scared in a while)


Conclusion: Obviously it's the Diet Coke that's been keeping me alive all these years. I can therefore reliably report Coke Adds Life.

I've really felt no particular change after only a couple weeks, Pero. I won't have any numbers results until the end of the month on what if anything has changed/is changing. As much as - now that I'm digesting it - that CD4 pctg is giving me a scare, I have to remind myself that my general guage all these years has been how I feel, not numbers.

Hang on Lancer,
yes numbers are just numbers, it is more important how are you feeling.
So how are you feeling; are there any tries for mowing the lane wink ?

(((Lancer)))
