Hi Jedi.

:-)

Long time no see. How have you been?

I have been much improved since adding prazosin to my treatment regime at the beginning of the year.

Currently:

Parnate 80 mg
nortriptyline 150 mg
Lamictal 200 mg
Abilify 10 mg
lithium 300 mg
prazosin 8 mg.

I know that this seems like quite a list, but it has been carefully honed over a period of several years. I could possibly do without the lithium and still maintain an antidepressant response, but I keep it in place to help prevent Alzheimers Disease. People with bipolar disorder have a significantly higher risk of developing it, and lithium might have a prophylactic effect. My intuition tells me that lithium is helping to prevent mood drift. At a relatively low dosage of 300 mg/day, lithium is less likely to damage kidneys or the thyroid gland.

Have a nice day.
