3 beers

In reply to perhaps a Professor of Psychiatry M.D. can treat U, posted by 3 Beer Effect on June 7, 2002, at 2:14:28

Thanks for replying. I started on the Lamictal and Remeron at the same time, in the hospital last year (had a psychotic manic episode because I quit Celexa cold turkey - BAD mistake!). The Remeron doesn't make me sleepy at all, in fact I still have to take Restoril to get me to sleep. The Lamictal is also so activating for me that I can't sleep by myself while on it, I have to have the Restoril. I really want to get off the Remeron and onto a more helpful SSRI. I quit the Zoloft over a week ago. Today I was so agitated I took a small dose, 12.5 mgs. Within hours I felt much better. Could it be inducing mania? I feel so good on it until it builds up in my system then I get bad headaches, etc. I also have Cigna insurance. They are the worst! Many health professionals have said I would be better off on Medicare. How sad is that? Right now I couldn't afford out of pocket to pay for another pdoc. I am going to try to see if any of the good ones in my area take Cigna. (highly doubtful but worth a try). You would think living in Southern California that great doctors would be everywhere, but ya know I couldn't find a psychopharmacologist at all. And I even called the UCLA medical center. They treated me like I was nuts! They didn't even know what a psychopharmacologist was, I had to explain it to them. So much for living in the big city!
