> >yesterday was lyrica 175mgs 3x, and was planning on the same today. tomorrow, could i go to 200 3x a day? I tolerate fine, and it helps.
> I think that would be OK.
> I don't suppose you're driving at the moment, are you?
> >Personally, i think the slight intoxicated feeling was/is from lyrica, i could be wrong. For sure felt no intoxication from 6mgs of xanax, which would be equivalent.
> It could be from Lyrica, certainly. Xanax and diazepam are never quite 'equivalent' though, so it is possible that it's due to diazepam.
> >I know the sedated, drunk, depressive, irritable feeling from diaz, and this didn't feel like it.
> Meds can work differently in combination, so it could be from Lyrica and diazepam together.

> >I had a great interview with a school in south korea yesterday, yeah yeah, i know, traveling to a foreign country and teaching in my state, albeit it's teaching english, and the curriculum is laid out, no teacher planning, i might actually enjoy it greatly, as even now, i love tutoring english online. Maybe having my own autonomy away from my parents. I don't know what would/could aggrivate this, and what could make it better.
> When does the job start?
> Once you're on Lyrica 600mg/day, I think you will be able to reduce your daily dose of diazepam by about 5-10mg. You could try taking 15mg - 15mg - 20mg or 20mg - 15mg - 20mg. I don't think the initial reduction will be particularly difficult because in percentage terms it's not a large reduction and also because your current dose is probably higher than you need to suppress withdrawal symptoms. After all, the 60mg/day starting dose was only an estimate.

Once again Ed, you are too kind and considerate.

I don't think that any amount of benzo could cover what my wd symptoms are/were.

Nope, license suspended after DUI last year, which was that moment that realized that the drugs were ruining my life and well being. It was my disgust of being on high dose trileptal and 30mgs of zyprexa (which gives me blackouts sometimes), i tried to tell the judge that, he didn't care

I could drive, but it would cost 300 dollars to get my license back, don't think it's in the cards,

Will go to 600mgs lyrica tomorrow.

Do you think hold 900 trileptal, or any plans of increasing this?

The teaching job in korea could begin in perhaps 2 months, maybe good timing? Like i said, something in my heart/intuition is telling me something dramatic need/is going to happen soon. I've failed so many times in my life with jobs and other things (think abraham lincoln LMAO), that i don't care what happens any more. After these experiences, things like death i have no fear of anymore, which perhaps is always a great subconscious anxiety driver for people. Sometimes i have this thought, maybe delusion, that after suffering this, and going through this, that i'm on the brink of enlightenment LMAO.

In your heart of hearts, think I need off the benzo, and that it's the problem Ed???????

I believe PDOC said hold it at least 2 weeks, and maybe on it long term, but i should give a crap what that guy says. I've worked with him for more than 2 years, and see how far he has gotten me.
I think sometimes taking your health into your own hands, and of knowledgeable persons (ED), is a much greater idea than giving that over to people who barely know you, just wanna see you for 30 mins every month, and hand you out drugs.
