  1. So my husband gets the second shot of the COVID vaccine today and I’m very anxious. Does anyone know, will it be ok? Will there be any side effects? Will they be mild? How long will they last and when do they begin? Anyone had the second shot and did it go ok?
  2. I don’t know what your dr wants you to do but I took it in the AM 6 mg I got up to before I had to quit due to horrible side effects. I wish you much better luck with it than I had. Best to double check with your dr though before you start it regrading when you should take it. Just in case.
  3. Thanks guys. She did mention wanting to get me off klonopin and go to just PRN at my first appointment. But I didn’t know it was going to happen this fast. I have 60 tablets in the bottle because I am still working on the bottle from my old pdoc. I have been taking 0.5 mg AM and 0.5 mg bedtime. So just 1 mg total daily. I don’t know if she wants me to be taking it daily still but.....eeek. It’s been somewhat rough at times with anxiety/falling asleep but nothing I haven’t been able to handle as of yet. I hope at our next appointment she will consider adding gabapentin as was disc
  4. I sent an email to my new psych NP today. I told her I needed a refill of klonopin and I take 1 mg, three times daily. She emailed back saying she called in the prescription as such: “it will say 1 tab 2x/day as needed for anxiety”. AS NEEDED?! So I’m going from 3 mg daily to 2 times PRN only, cold turkey? Wow! I knew she was anti-benzo but I thought she’d taper me. I hope I don’t have a seizure. Or become housebound again.
  5. Thanks gear. I just didn’t really know what to expect. It’s been so long since I started taking it daily instead of a PRN only. I do wonder if I’m starting to feel a very tiny bit improved. Thank you! Very good to know and hear. I didn’t know if I was crazy to think I could be very slightly improving so fast. Not out of the water yet though.
  6. Can a zyprexa increase of 10 mg work fast for reducing manic symptoms? As in starting to help in days even? Or does it take longer to see even a tiny bit of improvement? I was taking 20 mg and now I’m at 30 mg total (15 mg twice daily). This will be my third day of the increase. I think this dose increase is what I needed all along, you guys. I was so bad about taking the PRN consistently. I never took more than one PRN pill a day (25 mg total daily) and I confess I took it like once per week, if that. I kept forgetting or didn’t want to take it. Bad, I know. I’m sorry.

      You're not dumb Cheese.  One of the reasons we all like you is because you're so caring and give great advice.

  9. I am going off of lamictal and won’t be on a “true” mood stabilizer (topamax is for weight and eventually maybe adding gabapentin for anxiety?). But I guess my flavor of SZA is more psychosis heavy. I’ve always responded best to AP’s and not mood stabilizers. I don’t even notice my reduction in lamictal. And I have been on lithium and briefly Depakote and never missed those when I got off. Best of luck to you with Depakote. I have heard good things about it with regards to mood stabilizing. I know/knew of people who took/probably still are taking it.
  10. I wish I hadn’t heard the words that lead to the message from the universe telling me that no one likes me. It’s really broken my heart. I just can’t believe it still. I can’t move past it. It hurts me greatly. I am just a burden that no one likes. Nothing can change my mind I don’t think. I heard everything. Ok. Going to bed for real now. The universe is out to destroy me. Why now?
  11. “All the moments of life have been leading up to this point.” I just heard that. It was weird and I’m scared. I have to stay alive for the sake of others. My parents already lost one child. It should have been me instead though, right? But I also feel afraid though that the universe is coming after my life one way or another. Anyway, I better eat a piece of bread or something (just to get something in my body) and head to bed (it’s just about 6 pm). I don’t know what else to do right now. I’m scared.
  12. I’ve heard chatter from afar, a voice somewhere commenting on my actions and movements, a voice somewhere commanding me to do bad things to myself, random words or phrases sent to confuse me all the time, etc. I can never seem to find where this or these voice(s) are coming from. When I’m really bad off I wander the streets talking to the voice(s) trying to find where they are coming from. I usually end up in the ER with a shot of AP at that point with court orders galore. Not fun.
