Soo, Iv been on seroquel XR for 3 years on 150mg, and recently about 2 month ago, I started drinking more and did some coke every couple days, so when I was doing coke I wouldn't take my meds cuz i didn't know how they would react to each other.
Did that for 2 month now I just got my refil and I'm gonna start taking them regularly again, and I took on last night after not taking on for 3 or 4 days, and I feel anxious still and sick to my stumach, but I'm really tired like more tired then when I was on it regularly.
I'm kinda concerned and i hope that it goes away, any advice would help.
Yes im aware this was a bad idea I realize that now which is why I'm going back to taking them regularly and not doing coke anymore.
I am currently on 300 mg of seroquel for bipolar II (mainly depression) and 300 mg Lyrica for anxiety. I want to come off the Lyrica because I think it might be causing rage and it always seems to happen after my morning dose of 150 mg Lyrica, and 100 mg of Seroquel. I take 150mg of Lyrica at 9am and then again at 5pm. My Seroquel is taken at 100 mg at 9am and 200 mg at 9pm. It is Extended Release. The Lyrica is in capsule form.
Any thoughts? I am smallish 44 yo woman.
So I know I’m not to take nsaids with lithium as it can increase lithium levels and wreak havoc, including toxicity, seizures, etc. Problem is, I’m in bad pain and can’t take anything. Went to dr. I tore the meniscus in my knee and messed up my hip and back (already had herniated discs but they’d been doing well). Being active brought me out of a year-long depression and I don’t want to give up and be the blob in bed I used to be. But this pain is bad and Tylenol (acetaminophen) does nothing. The pdoc won’t lower my lithium dose so I can take some ibuprofen or something. Nobody has an answer to “Tylenol does nothing “. I’m wondering if taking half the lithium it would be ok to take some nsaids. Just wondering if anyone else has gone through this.
I am married to my husband almost 20 years and I have spent the last 5 years thinking/ acting out constantly about other men. Usually it is one obsession that lasts about 12 months or so and is quickly followed by another Sometimes it goes to emotional affairs, flirting, once to sexting but always, always in my head, constant intrusive fantasy of a ‘new life’. Husb doesn’t know all of it but enough to hurt and dismay. We are in therapy and no, i will not tell all - that’s just me unburdening my crap. He is a good man. I need this to stop in my head. I’m BPII, CPTSD etc, already on Lith, Efexor, Lamotrigine, anti-ep
So tired of running from thoughts. Doc not sure what to do- tells me to buy lingerie to wear for husband🙄. Been there done that. She thinks it is kind of funny but that my life would not be very good if i left him with MI (he is ‘big’ around town).
He really is great and my best friend. The thoughts won’t stop though continuous rumination about other blokes. THAT’S what is most distressing. I hate myself for this. I’m so very very tired.
I’m thinking of asking doc for quetiapine or similar to calm this mind? Anyone been the same position of feeling like a lying, sneaky whore? Any thoughts received gratitude. Except maybe more marriage counselling, talking, hurting him and the kids. This is my crappy rumination, i need it out. This is on me.
