Avatar m tn I lost my insurance, now I can't pay for the lamictal I was taking, and even if I tried, lamictal was a pretty stiff liver hazard penalty. I know that others have had it much worse. Maybe I'm spoiled, I know that I am weak. I can't concentrate, I hate the way I look, I hate the mean way that I act and think. I hate the mean, terrible things that happen in this world to people that don't seem to deserve it. Little innocent children killed and mistreated.
696149 tn?1314324559 I've done this before....that is taken much more than supposed to and I've been fine...that is up until yesterday. I don't know it was this that did it but I'm scared and now this definitaly will make me take it as prescribed! As I said I took 12mg the other day. The last dose I took, which was 8mg was around 12AM. I started having trouble breathing around 3AM and my pulse slowed.
Avatar f tn Nothing is ever lost when you love someone, no matter how much or how little. Love is all there is. That energy that powers your car is the same as the energy that powers your mind;it's love.
Avatar f tn My fiance is very intelligent, kindhearted and very loving person but when he had the relapse he was totally not himself. I love him very much and he loves me very much. He didn't sleep much when he had the relapse but I was happen not to be around at the time. He was not even able to talk to me on phone. His parents said he was acting pretty bad(abnormal and violent) and that he couldn't calm down to sleep at all.
Avatar f tn I've been so bad lately and it must be affecting her because she's not kicking as much. I've always wanted a family, but I never thought I'd have one. Never thought anyone would love me enough to want to have a baby with me. But it happened...and at the worst possible time. I'd just stopped snorting heroin a MONTH before I got pregnant. Funny 'cause the reason my boyfriend and I quit the drugs was we were happy together and wanted to work toward having a stable life and a family together...
Avatar n tn But you should not have ANY side effects from any meds they want to keep you on. You should just not have the mood swings as much. Lamictal is the ONLY med I have been on that I wasn't druged up on. My sister actually adv me to mention it to my Dr, she has the same thing, and she loves it. But PLEASE BE AWARE!!!!! ANY MEDICATION ONLY WORKS FOR A PERIOD OF TIME, AND AFTER A FEW MONTHS WILL WANT TO TRY SOMETHING ELES, IT IS, UNFORTUNATLY, AN ENDLESS BATTEL!
Avatar f tn I'm puzzled to see if me being medicated might make this happen (I take Lamictal 400 mg, and Risperdal 1mg), brain damage, or what might make this happen. None of it is un-managable, but it's just there. It wasn't there (or didn't appear to be - but I wasn't stable, so who knows!?), so I'm just curious! Have any of you "survivors" had these experiences?
Avatar f tn I'm prone to thinking that it could be the methadone. How long have you been taking it? There are many news reports that state the dangers of it. Many people have died from it. If you have high blood pressure, it makes it that much worse. I am NOT saying that this is your case, but it COULD be a possibility. This could definitely be causing your breathing issues. I would like for you to see your doctor as soon as you can. Tell him/her everything you have stated here.
Avatar n tn I have only taken meds for 3 days and still have time to stop before withdrawl could begin. How do you know when a problem is bad enough to take med's for it?

696149 tn?1314324559 I took one dose today and I felt allot better than it did yesterday. I still feel slightly nervous, but much much better than yesterday. No, the doctor didn't tell me how to take it, but I read the pamphlet after I took the 2nd dose yesterday. I was looking around on the Internet and I noticed people talking about putting it under their tongue. Well, anyway, I'm guessing the anxiety will get better and better.
486647 tn?1208789291 It all started when he was diagnosed with epilepsy and it went from epilem to lamictal rivatrol to stillnox. How can he get off the stillnox and get a good nights sleep? This is rediculous..all these drug companies are telling people that its not addictive when they most of them give side effects if you cut them out...well...HELLO that means the body is relying on it so it IS addictive. What can i do to help him????? I dont want to see him die like Heath Ledger!
8958586 tn?1481364312 I was admitted to the hospital after an accidental overdose when I was taking too much clonazepam to get through appointments and bad days. Since I wrote this, I still have yet to be diagnosed with Bipolar, simply because i have a new psychiatrist. I was started on Latuda while I was in hospital, but it didn't work for me and was too expensive. I still haven't been tried on lithium.
5717054 tn?1372962145 iv been on Valium forever it stops my paranoia some of my anxiety and insomnia and vertigo too much benzo has paradoxical effect. I just started Adderall 20mds XR First day was bad i figured cause my anxiety.
Avatar f tn I'm looking for a group or advice on pretty much everything with moods. I don't like my psychologist too much. For years I have struggled with anger, jealousy, and rage. (At the time I didn't know what was happening to me was rage). The rage follows with an overwhelming feeling of guilt, worthlessness and depression. (Whoa as me.) I don't recall ever dealing with mania or hypomanic episodes until my early twenties, heightened when I drink.
Avatar n tn Worse part of sleep meds is that you build a tolerance very quickly and it becomes ridiculous how much and how long for it to kick in, by that time my day is ruined, I will say that Seroquel will do the trick but I'd sleep my life away it's so strong and weight gain is a major side effect and it has some pretty harsh other effects long term that I read about, enough to scare me and insist my doc take me off of it.
2010625 tn?1329375656 It was recommended in a book I was reading. It is an amino acid. It is primarily used for tylenol overdose and some other heart related stuff, it is not widely used in bipolar so don't be surprised if your doc hasn't heard about it. There is only one study out there that I could find, but it was a well done study, that showed it helped with the depression end of things as an adjunct to what people were already taking. So it was as an addition not instead of.
696149 tn?1314324559 5 years before I started up again, due to a kidney stone. After seeing how I am with it, I do much much better. I've come to realize that you go through periods where the Vicodin doesn't do much at all and then there are others where it really helps. I don't know if I already said this or not but I went to my psychiatrist and I spoke about the Vicodin and he said one a day wouldn't hurt. Of course there's no way I could only take one a day, but I could stay with 6 a day.
Avatar f tn it's immaterial whether you heard of them before or not, the important thing is to follow your pdoc prescription. You don't gain much about knowing the list. some make you zombie, with others you put on weight, some tremors won't find the magic pill. However for your knowledge they are classified into 5 categories: 1. tranquilizers: benzo and the like 2. antidepressants (AD) 3. antipsychotics (AP) 4. anticonvulsants (AC) 5.
Avatar f tn Though I do agree with you that unless you live with bi-polar personally makes understanding how much it can affect your daily life very difficult ,it does not make getting support impossible. People will only know as much as we are prepared to tell them and I know that sometimes even we don't know why we are so sad. By learning how each mood state affects me and how I try to cope with each one has had a real effect on future episodes.
Avatar m tn I would want to know from the members of this forum about how many people are using Seroquel only as a sleeping aid in doses of 25 mg and 50 mg.All suggestions and answers are welcome.
Avatar m tn You can't fight it by yourself. Talk to friends and relatives about how you feel. One in five people have depression. Many will not admit it to others because they feel ashamed - especially men. You can't climb out of this dark hole by yourself. You need support. We on this site will support you all we can. I am 72 years old, and as I said, I have been fighting depression for a long time. I am now feeling well enough to try and do without antidepressants.
3063937 tn?1352426455 I spend almost EVERY day sitting in my garage in isolation. Sometimes just going to the grocery store is too much. I have been married for 9 years, and my husband is supportive, but really doesn't know much about mental illness. He's one of those happy go lucky guys. Lately, I've been isolation myself from him as well, which is out of the norm, since we are so close. I have no friends anymore, lost all interest in everything. I have tried just about every drug out there.
6726276 tn?1421130268 By the time I was referred to a neurologist, at least a year into therapy, my meds had changed to 250mg Lamictal, 15mg Abilify, Topomax, 2400mg Neurontin, 1 1/2 mg Klonopin...I had been on those since I stopped the Lithium due to side effects after 6 months. My weight came down, I had no other side effects, but my headaches were still raging after 1 1/2 yrs. of therapy. I knew it wasn't the meds, because even as I changed them, my headaches still followed.
Avatar f tn I was unable to drink without hitting blackout and am still that way today, although I do not drink as much now thanks to my more down to earth boyfriend. I smoked marijuana often and dabbled with some Xanax pills (only when I drank though because I enjoyed blacking out and it got me more "messed" up and faster).
Avatar f tn I'm drinking a big fuc**** glass of wine and taking three hundred mg of seroquel, and I've already got four mg of clonazepam in me, forty mg of propranolol, and four hundred mg of lamictal, and I honestly don't care if I wake up in the morning or not. I just don't care. I'm a financial drain, and I know it's pointless to lament, but I hate being this way. Why can't I just be a normal person?
607502 tn?1288251140 I know its a Tricyclic anti depressant but finding much information on it for use with Bipolar patients is not proving that easy and I sort of wanted to know a bit before taking it (The GP is useless in this regard and my pdoc is on holiday for a month) Its also known as Elavil, Tryptanol, Elatrol, Tryptizol, Trepiline, Laroxyl, Saroten, Triptyl.
1684282 tn?1505701570 In fact, because of the serotonin re-uptake inhibition of this drug, the depression aspect of withdrawal after tramadol is much more severe and lasts much longer. It needs to be specifically addressed. So what are we doing to our patients? Are we acting in your best interests? We must treat this medication with care it deserves as we must treat each patient with the care s/he deserves.
