  1. Does capytla have any anti-manic powers? That is what I wonder. Would a person prone to mania need to take like lithium or depakote then with it? I worry it will be like Latuda and not work much for manic prevention and not help as much as zyprexa zydis helps me for psychosis too. Zyprexa zydis has really been a sledge hammer for my psychosis. It’s lessened, and nothing really else has made it lessen. I fear the day I am made to switch off of it. I know that will probably happen. I currently take a “Symbyax-like” combo. I take zyprexa zydis 30 mg and generic Prozac 20 mg too. But I
  2. Why am I so forgetful and confused and dazed and more? The following is my total daily dose meds list….. Zyprexa Zydis 30 mg, Abilify 30 mg, Rexulti 2 mg, Gabapentin 2,400 mg, Prozac 20 mg, Vyvanse 40 mg, Synthroid 75 mcg, Yaz, Metformin 2,000 mg, Topamax 200 mg, Daily Probiotic, Daily Fiber Supplement
  3. So someone is stealing my identity or video recording me. They know details of me that aren’t possible to know without a video or more. I’m so rattled. And I can’t say much more. My day has been awful. I feel like crap. I don’t know what to do.
  4. You speak so much truth. Thank you. Thank you so much. This is my experience too. It’s like the instant I speak of it BAM off to the ER. I would like to talk through the issue too. So much.
  5. This. I know my neighbors (certain ones) and the mailman are trying to take pictures of me inside or outside my home.
  6. I plan to ask my pharmacist and dr this tomorrow (when they are open), but..... Can you safely split a nuvigil pill? I just want to ask this before I split any to add to my pill box. I know it’s not extended release. I got a “dr’s official go-ahead” to restart the nuvigil until I get the vyvanse in the mail. Thank goodness!
  7. I’m not sure where to post this. But, does anyone notice time flowing differently lately? I’ve had a doozy of an experience with this. I’m don’t know if I should be worrying about this or not.
  8. Yes, yes, and yes. Just today I got treated this way by a nurse (non psych nurse). I’m sorry you are dealing with this. I think most of us have, unfortunately. It’s not right.
  9. Thank you @Iceberg. You always have such good advice and experience to share. And you are very calming. Thank you for your words! I feel better about my appointment, which will happen very soon here. I almost canceled it last night. But I can’t go on like this. I need treatment. I will keep you posted for sure. I wonder if vyvanse lasts all day or if I have to take twice daily. I hope it would last all day. I have never tried adderall or any med like it. Besides nuvigil and provigil, but I don’t know if those even count. I know that those aren’t really stimulant meds technically but they
  10. I see my dr tomorrow about the Vyvanse. I’m nervous. Anyone know about vyvanse? I don’t know anything about it. I don’t know if I should try it. I have bad anxiety and psychotic issues that don’t need worsening. But this binge eating has to stop. It’s ruining my life. It has been around since I was a teen. The nuvigil decrease from 200 mg to 150 mg is going better now. Although the first days were rough. My psych NP never got back to me regarding her opinion of vyvanse. So I don’t know what she thinks. I think it would be either a really good or a really bad thing for me to sta
  11. My weight management dr is thinking of putting me on vyvanse for binge eating behaviors. I’m going off nuvigil if all goes well. I’ve never been on a stimulant besides nuvigil and provigil long term. What can I expect with a stimulant med? Especially vyvanse experience if possible too? Please and thank you! (I have some ADHD untreated issues long standing that might be helped by this)
  12. I use an app called schizophrenia storylines. I believe it is available for Android and iOS. It is useful to me. Although sometimes I ignore the alarm. Like today, for instance. My noon alarm went off and it’s past 1 PM and I have not taken my noon meds. Oops. And I haven’t eaten either. I need to get better at this. Maybe more phone alarms? I would suggest looking at different med tracker apps and playing around with them until you find one that suits your needs. There are many out there. Some paid, lots free. Mine is free. I’d say try the free before you pay. There are so many
  13. My husband had no reaction to the second shot, thankfully. Both of my parents had no reaction to the second shot too. My tdoc just had a sore arm where she got the vaccine in her arm. She said Tylenol took away the pain and that was that. I will try to remember to update my own journey. I myself get the second shot soon. I had no reaction to the first shot. I’m sorry I didn’t see this earlier. I apologize for neglecting this!
  14. I’m having some trembling of my lips and hands. Plus I’m still hearing lots of voices and more bad stuff. My mood and anxiety level is meh. I can’t think straight. I forget everything. I fear I’m losing my mind. I want to get off rexulti at minimum. I will then be on abilify and zyprexa zydis. I’d like to have a different AP as a PRN or add on. Maybe saphris? It worked well before but caused increased appetite. I do really well with -pine AAP’s. I see my NP tomorrow. I’d appreciate any input. What would be a good rescue med or add on? I’m at the max for zyprexa, says my NP.
  15. Definitely athleisure. Soooooo comfy. I wear it around the house. And I look like I just came from the gym! Hey! Win win!
