everyone is different, but perhaps you should not be so hasty in associating the depression solely due to xyrem. Could it be your initial dose was too high? I had a problem with my dr raising dosage too fast -
Interesting you stated what you did, for the syrenge that I received witht he xyrem states onit, 1.5g.
I was told that my doctor wanted me to use the 2.25g, so I did ever one week from when I started using it. So up to 4.0 it got to the point where I felt awful. went back down to 3.0, Well 3.0 went ok, but soon landed me into the hospital thinking that I was having an stroke, four times, due to out of control numbing of my face, mouth, arms, and legs.
I've heard that it use to be that people were to use Xyrem with each dose for 2 weeks before moving to an higher dose. Have you heard anything about the dosing?
Also, if you don't mind, could you share with me your dosing problems, for it for sure would help me know that I wasn't the only one who has experienced what I did?
