So…..I took my 50mg dose of Lamictal upon waking every day for the last 5 days. Each day I feel the anxiety rising within a half hour. Waking up anxious is not new to me, but doing it daily is. I expect that within another half hour there will not be enough food in the world to satisfy me. I won’t be hungry. But I will have a terribly strong desire to eat anyway.
So….I’m going to call the pdoc office when they open and request an emergency appointment to fix this. It is obviously not working. I’m going to request Topomax or Geodone. I’m tired of playing around with Seroquel, Lamictal and Prozac. They are not working. I think we have tried every possible combination of these meds and it’s just not doing it. I’m feeling like a drastic change is required, and these meds may or may not work, but I have to get away from what I’m on now. I could not tolerate the newer stuff like Saphris and Latuda, so I’m thinking it’s time to go off script and try completely new stuff.
So….that’s all I can manage right now. Hopefully I’ll be able to write more later.
