  1. Same list, minus one med. My GI doc took me off of the pantoprazole on Monday after hearing how well I'm doing in regards to my acid reflux/heartburn.
  2. Not 100% sure, but I think that the anti-Parkinson meds Cogentin and Artane can be used for tremors. I think they use these for tremors from Parkinson's.
  3. Antidepressants can worsen anxiety before they help. At least that's what happened to me when I started taking antidepressants.
  4. Feeling Good.  :lol:

  5. Iced Coffee

    I really enjoy iced coffee, how about you guys? When I'm out, I get hazelnut iced coffee. How do you take your iced coffee?
  6. Just to let you know, they do make Xanax XR (extended-release), that you don't have to take as often. (Never taken it, however, I'm on Xanax IR)

      Merry Christmas to you too, Andy!

  9. I take Lithium myself, been on it since 2008. As far as I can tell, I don't get any sedation from the lithium. I understand you say you only take those 3 medications in the morning, and It's possible that the lithium could be making you sleepy in the mornings, but could it also be possible that maybe the sedation from one of your night pills might be carrying over into the morning?
  10. Here's my updated list: Lithium 900mg (300mg AM / 600mg bedtime) - mood stabilization Clozaril 325mg bedtime - psychosis and mood stabilization Celexa 20mg AM - bipolar depression Xanax 0.5mg 3x/day - anxiety and panic Pantoprazole 40mg bid - gerd / acid reflux Pepcid 40mg bedtime - gerd / acid reflux Colace - PRN constipation Miralax - PRN constipation
  11. I was just diagnosed with lactose intolerance and I'd like to learn about different things I can do (diet, etc) to help prevent further upset. I know (from doc) that I have to avoid milk that's from a cow, and that almond milk is ok. If you guys have any suggestions or feedback please let me know.
  12. What Did You Accomplish Today?

    I got 2 doctor's appointments done today. One for pdoc and one for my GI doctor. They both went very well.
  13. Anybody ever take Topamax as a mood stabilizer (for bipolar)? If so, please share your experiences. Thanks in advance.
  14. I'm seeing pdoc on Monday.
