  1. My cat Musa.
  2. Yes. It may get less sedating over time. I would give it a week or two but as always call your doc if it gets to be too much.
  3. Amphetamine caused desert like dry mounh but I waited it out and months later it let up. I suspect the drooling from the Abilify and the drying from the amphetamine have balanced things out so I have normal hydration in my mouth now.
  4. You can get up to 4 % OTC though that may burn. 2 to 2.5% is the usual dilution. Search "buy lidiocane" on google and amazon. Compounding pharmacies make it up to any % but you need a doc's script.
  5. Regardless of what happens to some bipolars when you give them some AD;s, it still comes back to symptoms. Symptoms are all we can treat and diagnosis is based on symptoms.
  6. It seems not much helps but it is not permanent once you stop the drug causing it. Perhaps another AP will not have these effects. DIP is drug induced parkinsonism
  7. I think you mean pseudo-Parkinsonian syndrome. Parkinson's is a disease but there is a syndrome that mimics some of the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease. Pseudo-Parkinsonian syndrome turns up as an EPS. It does not mean you have Parkinson's Disease. AP's can cause it, Abilify causes my Pseudo-Parkinsonian hand tremor. I take propranolol, it goes away,
  8. My levels are usually in the upper 30's and we are going with that. They were 14 when first tested. Doc said there are several reasons for low levels in general and even if you supplement. You really need a test at least once to assure you are storing enough D.
  9. You should not do this without your doc knowing about it.
  10. Given the huge numbers who take SSRI's if akathisia were common you would see it but it just does not turn up. It is for more common with Abilify.
  11. I never weaneded off TCA's as they had no withdrawal symptoms. Just a few sleep symptoms in the more sedating ones.
  12. Lunesta is long acting but weak so you need to try it at 3 mg, I would try it with the doxepin. I see you tried Lunesta, did you take 3 mg and with doxepin ?
  13. You might try CBD which is in cannabis and is a cannabinoid but not psychoactive. It is legal in all 50 states. Some dispensaries sell cannabis high in CBD or you can buy it purified in capsules or as a power. All legal everywhere as it contains no THC. CBD has the anticonvulsive properties. Said to help depression, pain and anxiety. A common cannabis strain is Catatonia. Charlotte's Web is a CBD product for sell everywhere and legal. High CBD content in a tincture, A bit pricey. Hemp seed oil is legal everywhere as it contains no THC but has CBD and a nice combo of Omega 3. 6. and 9 essential fatty acids. It is cheap and can be found in one gram soft gels.
  14. Buspar often does nothing so I do not know if you can boost nothing.
