a combo of effexor and wellbutrin -- the only thing that really works for anxiety is the effexor, though, but it numbs you out a little. [ Reply | More ]

np. Many people with anxiety experience augmented symptoms on Wellbutrin, which is not really used to treat GAD. It may help with depression-related anxiety in as far as it treats deprssion. [ Reply | More ]

It's not used to treat anxiety and many people who take it to offset the effects of other medications find that it has negative effects. Just something to be aware of. [ Reply | More ]

effexor, but it destroys the rest of your life as well so that isn't really an option. i'm on lexapro which doesn't decrease anxiety but gives me a little more control over it and I work out for 2 hours a day, take ambien to sleep without panic attacks, and have no stimulants (excess sugar or caffeine)...and it has helped but I will always have painful anxiety [ Reply | More ]

Are you looking for Fall 2008? If so, I would just call up and ask if they have any openings for the fall. If they do, they will tell you the application process. Not all of the schools on the approved list will require a neuropsych eval...there is no reason to jump thru all of the hoops at this point in the process if there are no openings ...if there are openings you can talk to them more about what type of child they are looking for [ Reply | More ]

Just a part. Also important is the wife's salary, whether the division of assets gives her a settlement she can live on, etc. Without a prenup though, it is hard to predict. A lot of wives who expect alimony are surprised to learn ungenerous most divorce laws are to non-working spouses. [ Reply | More ]

op:hi. I'm not sure how much time I need to spend choosing bath tiles, floor tiles, backsplash tiles etc with him. Oh and lighting too. DH and I had tried to do it on our own and it was overwhelming with the choices available. Thought hiring a decorator would mean less legwork on my part. He doesn't have an office (works out of his home) but so far has brought samples to me. Eliminated some, others were possibles. Next batch included more eliminations than I thought was right ie I thought he'd know from my choices what to come back with. Now he wants to meet at his favorite tile and lighting stores next week. How much time would your client normally need to spend shopping? Tia [ Reply | More ]
