>("GHB the first authentic ad").
>First of all I have to thank you for writing this article, GHB is
>really FANTASTIC! First I should write something about myself:
>I'm currently treated for depression and generalized anxiety by a
>psychiatrist (he's very well-known here in Ticino, his name is DELETED maybe you
know him). I've tried A LOT of AD's and none of
>them really works, at the moment I'm taking the following cocktail of

>Morning: 30mg Deroxat(paroxetine)
> 10mg Melleril(thioridazine)
> 15mg Tranxilium(chlorazepate)
>Midday: 10mg Melleril
> 15mg Tranxilium
>Evening: 75mg Anafranil(Clomipramine)
> 30mg Melleril
> 15mg Tranxilium
>(My comment:That's a crazy mixture.Claude Rifat)
>After reading your article I decided to try GHB (without telling it my
>doctor), I was able to order it for an OUTRAGEOUS price (212Sfr for
>50g) . It lasted 1 week and the effect lasted
>another week after I stopped taking it! I NEVER FELT SO GOOD! It was

>I'm wondering if you would accept to talk with him, he has read your

>His concerns are the following:
>1) Why didn't anyone discover the AD properties of GHB?(Comment:Many Reasons for

>I will see him again on 23/1/96 and we'll talk about GHB again, I

>45 AMILLY FRANCE
>It looks a little bit short to me....

anti-depressants to the basket! Goodbye Prozac,etc!
