Concern about boyfriends med mix

Posted by Little Bird KK on August 26, 2008, at 0:45:15

Im new to this site but I heard I can get support and experience advice on medications and for mental health problems.
My concern is for my boyfriend. He is 35 and he has Bipolar mixed schizophrenia. Hes been on meds for about 15 years. That I don't care about, because I don't judge my man for that...he's a sweetheart. In the last 2 years hes been on a nightly dose of Seroquel 100mg, Abilify 30mg and Citalopram 20mg. He just started the Citalopram in March because he was complaining of depression and negative thoughts. Well, it just doesn't seem like the meds he's on are working. On a almost daily basis he is in bed all day and complains constantly of having no energy or desire for any goals or for fun!!! I do have to say that last summer he had a psychotic break and was in the hospital for about 3 weeks, however since then he has been a zombie!!! His sex drive is normal, but he has no energy for anything else. Hes only out of bed for a couple of hours and when he is, hes usually just sitting down. Not to mention our conversations are pretty void. He tells me its not me, so I know for sure its not because of our relationship. I try to get him to do things with me, nicely, without being a nagging B****. Can anyone tell me if he is on the wrong kind of meds and or if he is on a toxic level? Does anyone have a suggestion of meds? Thanks
