Stopping all meds - just plain tired

Posted by sekou on February 6, 2006, at 11:53:13

I've already stopped the Lexapro after tapering myself off from 10 mg. My doc px'd Lamictal (400mg/day) for bipolar hypomania, which I read can be secondary to taking Lex. I've been on Lex for about 2 years now, and I don't feel any better. The suicidal thoughts are rampant as ever.

Since I spent a lot of time over the holdiays working and alone, I had a panic attack where I found myself in the ER - my p-doc px'd Risperdol for the short term. Wihin a week, I stopped taking that all together. I felt like a zombie.

The clonopin has been helping with my anxiety, but I am tired of that as well and plan to wean off of that within the next couple of months.

I am JUST tired of all these meds. They seem to be exacerbating more psych problems than theraputic outcomes. By April 1st, I expect to be off all meds. By that time, I will defend my prospectus for my doctoral program. I hope my mind get clearer in the process of tapering off these meds which seems to cloud my mind and affect my creativity.

Any concerns or similar experiences out there?
