Sound off - what are you struggling with lately?

Posted by EastC on January 2, 2011, at 21:32:36

So I would like to start a conversation on what everyone is struggling with lately with their mental illness with regards to meds. I myself am on a cocktail of Lexapro and Strattera in the morning (along with high EPA fish oil) and Neurontin, Seroquel and Xanax at bedtime. I still have good days and bad days but this is the best combination yet so far. My struggles are insomnia that was once very responsive to these meds to a mix of good nights and bad nights that negatively effect my quality of life (motivation, focus at work, the desire to be around others, etc.) It makes me realize how much 'normal' people take for granted. Also, I find that my overall level of energy and motivation even on well rested days drops quickly after about 3:00 pm when the previous nights dose of Neurontin wears off and then returns around 10:00 pm when the next dose takes effect - unfortunately I cannot take Neurontin around the clock otherwise I become depressed and can't sleep (strange paradoxical phenomena indeed). I hope to hear from some of you!
