Med change! That was quick. My insurance company would not cover Fetzima. I am staying on Wellbutrin ( I had been titrating lower) and Effexor has been added. Daily 75 mg xr. I have been obsessing over how long it takes to get stable and I had a good conversation with my Pdoc around it. I feel much more at ease with this process. He also was quick to say, I will not abandon you. He told me he has had 2 patients that he referred to the Mayo Clinic for a second opinion but it was just a second opinion in the end they are still his patients.
I have allergies? I never had them before, but this has got to be allergies. When I went to pick up my Effexor I spoke to the pharmacist, who at this point is a good friend. She knows what I take and I told I was very symptomatic currently.
She really didn't like any of the allergy meds available for me. I bought a nasal saline rinse. I awoke today sneezing, my eyes swelled up and itchy. I am gonna have to cave in and get the Zrytec spray. I have a big client meeting and I can't go into it looking and sneezing like this. Oh and did I mention the random snot dripping all over. Pharmacist warned me it contains steroids in small amounts. I dont react well to steroids. Hoping the small amount won't hurt. I can always stop it after this meeting.
Yesterday was a bad eating day. Meaning I ate at about 1pm in the afternoon and then only cus I knew it was one in the afternoon and I should eat. Weight seems neutral. I am doing some weight resistance and daily yoga, so should be building muscle.
Lastly, my three things:
1) The Hawks won.
2) My husband is getting more comfortable with my dx and is more supportive
3)Yesterdays and even todays weather is amazingly perfect.
