so yeah, the weird spasming mentioned in my previous post?
full of mystery and botulism
Boy is it back with a vengeance! I notice it most when I take a deeper than normal breath, and it feels like a little spasm starts in the back of my throat and kind of "pings" up through the back of my head. Also feel it in my hands, and I'm kinda dizzy and a little unsteady on my feet.

Most peculiar. Not "OMG, MUST SEE A NEUROLOGIST CUZ IT MIGHT BE A TUMOR!" "OH NOES, NOT A TUMOR!" "MAYBE IT'S LUPUS!" peculiar, but still...I'd like it to stop now, plzkthnx.

Bed soon. Yes.

You know,

That looked like "MeOff." Maybe it's because it's 6:30 in the morning and I didn't get loads of sleep last night, but still.

Also, yeah. Antidepressants can mess with your system that way. Give you lovely "hotpaths" and everything else.

You might consider supplements:
GABA - though there are few conclusions on its ability to pass the BBB, it still seems to have a pretty strong effect on oral administration. It helps prevent excitotoxicity as well as excess nerve stimulation. Worth a shot, likely.
5-HTP - Seratonin precursor. Worth supplementing in lieu of the hardcore pharmaceuticals in cases of depression.
Green Tea - Similar abilities to GABA in terms of preventing excitotoxicity and general issues with nerve excitation. Gogo green tea!

Aside from that, though, good luck. Those side effect profiles are a bitch, even when you do everything "right."

Yeah, I did a couple double takes on the artist's name, too.

Any suggestions on where to look for these supplements? Would they be more likely to be found at a GNC or a homeopathy store? Or should I just look online?

Whole Foods/Sprouts/Henry's and other similar natural food types tend to have them. GNC probably wouldn't in most cases.
