Ok so in other posts I have posted about topamax and once again I have more questions about it!
It has seriously thrown my anxiety and panic off the edge. Things I never have really experienced before. Went off it, still anxious as hell. Getting a tad better but still hello... There. This was the ONLY med that has ever helped me with my bulimia and binge eating. Is it possible to get back on it and be on something else that will ease the side effects from it? Or is that just the dumbest question?
wellbutrin , lamatal 5 years+ started to lose effectiveness. Added 900 mg lithium past 3 years. Meds tolerated well, past 4 months started to get very ill after taking meds. Isolated it to the lithium went off with I'm sure a too rapid titration if 6 days. Hitting the wall very hard but my pdoc started me on Latuda. Sorry to ramble.
concerns: effectiveness compared to lithium, possibility of nausea with this med, cost (on samples now crappy insurance) I went on ability a few years back very effective could not afford after free samples. I need to do what my doc wants understould, just kind off lost. By the way I did what I was told by my Doc coming off lithium but I was getting so sick I was going to go cold. Pleas don't do this the only thing keeping my alive is my wife.
I was just prescribed Adderall yesterday on top of all the other meds I take (Trileptal, Zoloft, Klonopin & Latuda). I've taken it in the past for recreational purposes at 30mgs per time. My current prescription is 10mg twice a day, but me being me I just HAD to get a buzz once or twice before taking it normally. I chewed 30mg last night and felt great -- the normal for that dosage. This morning I crushed up 30mg and went to toss it back, but I spilled a bit so I took one more 10mg pill straight up (just swallowed it with water) to try and get as close to 30mg as possible. So, I'm on somewhere between 30-40mg and the buzz is great, but my focus is a bit off. Kinda fuzzy. I took a couple 1mg klonopins to try and even things out, but I'm wondering if I feel fuzzy because I took more than usual or because I took it as soon as I woke up and my body isn't used to a jump start so early. I would appreciate not getting a bunch of replies about not using meds recreationally or about me being some kind of junky. I'm not -- I just wanted to experience that old feeling once or twice again. Also, I will add that I haven't taken my other meds (Trileptal, Zoloft & Latuda) yet today. Any helpful answers would be much appreciated.
I've been taking Wellbutrin for about a year. I began with the immediate release version but switched to SR because I kept forgetting to take it. I've been on it for 6 months and it started out fine, but now I fine myself exhausted shortly after taking it. It's not just sleepy, I also feel week, have a constant urge to yawn and feel mentally foggy. This did not happen with the IR version. Has anyone had a similar experience? It does work well for my mood but the exhaustion is very unpleasant and affects my quality of life. I had this experience with another XR med too- adderall. I have ADD and adderall is a life saver in the IR form, but I couldn't tolerate the SR version.
has anyone else experienced this, specifically in SR versions? Does anyone take Wellbutrin IR version with any luck?
