I'm new here but read most previous posts with interest. I'm really grateful to hear that some of you have found some relief and some answers with Mt. I just want to add something which I think others should be aware of.
I've been battling 3 years with chronic back and leg pain, which despite 5 operations has not been cured. Consequently I'm on a very mixed bag of drugs (opiates, benzodiazapines etc). I've only sufferer from depression forever (about 8 y.o. now am 35) but decided to take the plunge and try medical solutions. I started on Citaloprim, maxed out on those within six months but no real effect except confusion. Next and currently on Venafaxine, but maxed out on these also with very limited success. Also seeing a psyotherapistfor help, this is slow but worth it. Recently I've been hopelessly depressed, so on the recommendation of a psychiatrist, I asked my GP to add Mt to the mix. (I also take propranolol for panic/anxiety disorder).
The outcome was horrible. One of the worst side effects was severe nightmares (much worse than my usual nightmares), which I couldn't wake up from. But the most stressful part is the dizzyness, particularly after a days work. The dizzyness becomes head-shocks (feels like someone is running riot with electrodes and 50,000 Volts accross my brain), and then becomes halucinations. These are not like flying fish etc but are very distressing. Two typical ones include (a) loss/shadowing of periferal vision and (b) unsteadyness walking. The walking one is the chiller, it seems as if my right foot sinks up to the ankle when I walk on it, throwing my balance off completely. There have been times when I wonder how did I even make it home, it can take an hour or more on what is normally a 20 min walk.
I've abandoned the Mt on day 18 and after a few really bad days now am returning to normal (i.e. depressed as hell). I need to see my GP on Thursday and find an alternative booster drug, so if anyone out there has similar experience or better yet another suggestion I'm desperate to hear!
