  1. How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    Thank God for good people. Battery died at the grocery store, a guy was nice enough to give me a jump. Made it to the auto parts place and got a new battery.
  2. I think that is something that you will have to think about till the answer comes to you. It will come eventually, maybe not as fast as you want it too, but it will.
  3. Let me know how you feel on the new dosage. I really don't know about it stopping working. I hope that isn't the case. I'm only a little over a month in, so I don't know yet. I went up since I was still having mild paranoia and some delusional thoughts, so I asked to try 4.5mg. I've been on that dosage for a few days and it seems to have calmed that down. I wish there was more info. You're the only other person on this thread who has really shared your experience. I do like this med so far. Except for one day early on when I had a bout of akathisia, it has been relatively side effect free. The only thing I can really complain about still is sleep. But it is getting better. I found some extended release melatonin and it works pretty good.
  4. I just started trintellix as well. You aren't alone. I have no idea how it is going to affect me in the coming days/weeks. I'm kinda just going with the flow because I've tried pretty much everything else except wellbutrin and maoi's. So far I don't really feel anything happening, but I've only been on it for a few days. Keep posting how you are doing. It helps to get feedback from other people here.
  5. Good luck with your search as well. I wish there was a cure all, but we do what we can. I've found that now with vraylar I don't need as much of the stimulant. I went down from 15mg 3x a day to 10mg 2x and it is working as well. Hope the trend continues. Trying to keep a more positive attitude as winter approaches. Usually I am asleep most of the time till spring comes around.
  6. whatever the weather

    I agree, just wish it was still light in the evening like summer.
  7. Dexedrine spansules are very consistent for me. I take it in the AM and Afternoon. Taking it for depression mainly. I used to take Ritalin, never tried an extended release version. It made me angry sometimes as well, which is why I quit taking it.
  8. It sounds like your doc probably wants you to get stable on clozapine before you get off the others. At my appointment I asked to switch my mood stabilizer to lamictal. It was based on what I've read about it helping treatment resistant depression. But she increased vraylar and told me she wanted me to get stable first on that. She did switch me from pristiq to trintellix, which was nice. I know we all want to be better quicker, but it makes sense to wait and try to be patient. Don't give up till you get what you want. It will come.
  9. Went up to 4.5mg today after pdoc appointment. Hopefully all goes well.

    I hate life. Very tired of existence.

    Like a steaming pile o' shit Sucks not to be one of the cool kids... High school never ends...
  12. Just ritalin. Probably will have to go back to that.
  13. Did the higher dosage make you feel better? I am at 3mg right now. I was nice and calm for a few weeks. Then the paranoia surfaced again. But, like I mentioned it could be due to the time change. I always get sicker at this time of year.
