Avatar m tn Do you mean that is your starting dosage? You have to ramp up Lamictal dosage slow. I am at 200Mgs of Lamictal a day and it took me 2 months to reach that effective dosage.

Avatar n tn My sister was diagnosed with mood disorder a few weeks ago and was recommended to take Zyprexa (2 pills/day) for 6 weeks to treat it. She took the medicine for 2 weeks and left it without the doctor's recommendation as she used to feel too exhausted and she thought that her emotions were under her control now. After a week of leaving the medicine, she slowly became hyper and even sucidal.

With the aspergers patient the dosage for Zyprexa will be totally different than for bipolar. You are right the high dose is suppose to kinda ATTACK the illness. The high dosages though will kinda put a person in a catatonic state.

222267 tn?1253305810 I will copy and paste what I found so you can read for yourself but let me say that for me it was being on too high a dosage of Zyprexa that gave me anxiety. Once I was off that drug, I was just fine. Zyprexa is an anit psycotic... I no longer use Zyprexa, but use Seroquel when I get ill but as soon as I am better I discontinue. I encourage you to look up your meds and be proactive with your healthcare. There is no proof that staying on that anti psycotic long term is of any benefit to you.
Avatar f tn I was put on Propranolol during a very bad bout od deep depression, but I could not stand the side effects, and stopped that too. Can't remember the dosage. Perhaps a higher dose will help you. I think anything worth trying to get relief. However, some medications help some people, and not others. Keep in touch and tell us how you get on. Sorry I am no help.
574118 tn?1305138884 there are other sites which mention the maximum dose of both. max for risperidone is 9 while for seroquel is 900. also based on DDD it's 80. when you say equivalence it isn't the drug content but the potency as far the need for the drug. seroquel brochure says 900 don't exceed it while risperidone 9. you see it's a homework i did i am not a pdoc to judge my conclusion but i tried to work out the ratio.
Avatar m tn I did have one doctor though, that had me wrongly diagnosed, I told him that I had been taking my friend's lithium and I thought I was bipolar instead of major depression, and he gave me the meds! maximum dosage, along with the rest of the cocktail I was taking! none the less I was right about the misdiagnose but wrong about the meds. So nope I am not trying to say which meds are best for me). I was curious about Michael's meds because he has gone through the same things I have.

Avatar n tn My pain specialist put me on neurontin for back pain (ruptured disk) and, as the dosage was increased, I began having private 2 way conversations in my head. At one point, I would turn to my husband and out of the blue ask him if he wanted white or dark meat. He had no idea what I was talking about. I got to the point where I would just say "nevermind", because I knew I was the only person involved in that conversation.
Avatar n tn I too have struggled with my weight due to all of the anti-depressants I've been on and off, and on again.... but this combination works for me. Each time I increased my dosage I experienced tingling in my hands and a little fatigue but now I take my medication before I go to bed and I feel great during the day. The tingling has also stopped. I've gone from 142lbs to 115lbs without changing my habits. I have less of an appetite now so I make sure I'm eating enough so I don't lose anymore.
20003388 tn?1515169640 ) In addition you are on 5 Central Nervous System (CNS) Drugs, when the recommended maximum is only 3 (taken concurrently). And also on 2 Anti-depressants, when only one at a time is the recommendation. Perhaps, your doctors have a very good therapeutic intention for prescribing all these meds, understanding the possible consequences and implications, after doing a thorough risk-benefit analysis. But I doubt that.
