  1. MAOI Diet Effects

    OP, a simple call to your doctor or pharmacist could put your mind at eas about cheese. When in doubt, it's always a good idea to check with the professionals.
  2. MAOI Diet Effects

    When I was on an MAOI, my doctor told me that I could eat unaged cheeses. Beyond that I don't know a lot.
  3. That's a tough question. As Redhead said, it is really going to depend on your pdoc. Some pdocs view any substance abuse as a bar to being prescribed controlled substances while others differentiate between substances and would think that alcohol abuse is very different from stimulant abuse. You do have going for you the fact that you have never abused your stimulant. I think that will go a long way towards letting your pdoc know that you can be trusted. I do encourage you to get help with alcohol though. Mixing alcohol and lorazepam is potentially dangerous.
  4. Questions Thread

    And to answer Rabbit, I like the dishwasher even though I'm doing them by hand. Same question I posted ^^ that somehow got overlooked.
  5. Questions Thread

    What is the difference between southern fried chicken and northern fried chicken?
  6. There hasn't been any music produced since the 1800s. Just noise that needs to be regulated and banned.
  7. I don't know of anything from the 80s that I would call music. It's just noise.
  8. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    Anxiouis, worried and frustrated.
  9. This happened to me for the first time yesterday. I normally use Chrome and never had a problem, but I'm now using Firefox and it happened to me. Don't know if that had anything to do with it or not.
  10. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    anxious, worried, and disgusted
  11. It's approved up to 15 mg for depression and the antidepressant doesn't have to be an SSRI. Any antidepressant will do. It didn't even start to work for me until I hit 10 mg. @Wonderful.Cheese Don't ever think that things will be better if you ended it. You are right that it sucks that we have to choose between a roof over our heads or our meds. But now is the time to fight that injustice, not lay down and give up. In no way would the world be better off without you. But your voice might just be what is required to change things in the future. So don't give up, please. @Dr. Marshall Abilify has been a life changing med for me too. I can't praise it enough because it is the only med that has ever touched my apathy and anhedonia period. So if it completely poops out on me, my only hope is Rexulti or ECT.

  13. You might get different answers to this, but with regard to depression, I believe it can poop out. Abilify for me is nowhere as effective as it was when I began taking it in 2011. It still works somewhat and I do get worse if I go off it, but it just isn't the same as it was. The good news is that there is always Rexulti which is similar to Abilify.
  14. Yeah, that's what people call the med merry-go-round.
  15. The med merry-go-round is hard and unfortunately there is no good way to short circuit it. I have had start-up anxiety on nearly every SSRI I have started. It's just part of the start-up effects. However, that passes and the SSRI actually makes anxiety much better. It's kind of a paradox, but they do work. Have you ever taken Celexa (citalopram)? I find that citalopram works as well as any benzo. In fact, I continue to take citaloparm, not so much for depression, but for anxiety. It's really a great med for anxiety, at least for me, but it comes with a high cost of causing apathy.
