A slew of meds, confuzzled

Posted by conundrum on August 13, 2010, at 7:05:11

Hi all, I think I have trouble trusting my doc and just letting go. Its important to watch out for your self but you also need to trust a doctor. Its almost as if I don't want certain meds to work, because I'm afraid it will prevent me from taking the meds I want. Pretty sick eh?

Also I am kind of confused about what is helping. My pdoc had me start abillify at half a pill and now 2mgs. It seems to make me want to get things done, like I just drank a ton of tea at once. So its stimulating, it also seems to be adding a slight amount of color, but is really doing nothing for anhedonia. Just seems to make me want to get things done robotically, so far atleast. The thing is I'm on mirtazapine and lamictal and don't want to stop mirtazapine, without trying adding an SNRI to it. Also my pdoc wants me to increase lamictal up to 400 mgs, since my blood levels are currently too low. So I'm a bit confused. I'll see how the abilify helps, she said it doesn't take long to see how it helps.

I guess I'd rather take a couple drugs that nix anhedonia and improve concentration and memory than be taking a slew of them.

One of the downsides of abilify is that it makes me really hungry. More than mirtazapine, but maybe them in combo is a bad idea.

Post-SSRI problems: iatrogenic anhedonia, memory and concentration problems, sexual dysfunction.


Currently taking 300mg Lamictal,45mg mirtazapine, and 2 mg abilify.
