  1. I see you are taking IR Metformin. Don't do that. The XL version features far less GI problems. On the IR I had cramps so bad they brought me to my knees. With XL all that stopped and I take 1 gram twice a day.
  2. Why are you taking it by injection ? Usually this is reserved for compliance issues.
  3. Well you have only tried 2 but there are at least 10-20 more to try, amoung the APs and the AAPs so you have not even stated to sample the antipsycotics. Few do well on the very first meds they take. It takes some fiddling and trials before the right med shows itself. Yes, some succeed in totaly eliminating all the voices.
  4. I also prefer dextroamphetamine, Dexadrine is 100% dextroamphetamine.
  5. vitamin D deficiency is very common, a level of 20 nanograms/milliliter to 50 ng/mL is considered normal. I was in the single digits when I was first tested. I now take 3,000 IU a day, every day and get a reading in the higher 20/s. I would like to be higher.
  6. This is a job for an endocrinologist. Don't mess with you thyroid, it controls many things. If you have to increased so be ir.
  7. Isn't there an ED suppository that is inserted in the urethra and delivers a medication(s) ? Not sure which one(s).
  8. With the stims like ritalin and amphetamine most just know when they have hit the right pill/dose. The difference is that big for those who it is going the work for. SO start with a low dose and if no joy in a while increase. Wash, rinse, repeat until it gets better noticeably. It is worth it to keep on increasing a bit after it starts working. These meds have a range that they work for each individual person so there is no way to know how much is enough until you try. Stop if side effects start or are unmanageable. Or if you don't just feel right. Drop back to whatever dose you felt best on. You are aiming for the lowest dose with the most good effects.
  9. Most meds are metabolized by the liver, a few exit the renal route directly. Meds like Keppra that are not metabolized at all so you pee the whole dose out. I diuretic could matter here. But mostly not. The main issue with coffee is it is acidic. Take your adderall with a cup of Joe and you will reduce its effectiveness.
  10. It is best for the liquid to be pH neutral. OJ is too acid, so are some soft drinks. Water is really the best for pill taking. I avoid acidic drinks for an hour or so, to let the meds get through the stomach.
  11. No you can't flush them out. It's an 8 hour process from stomach to exit, going through the intestines. Most absorption takes place in the upper GI. It is best to take meds with some fat and some protein, I take a spoonful of peanut butter.
  12. There will always be interactions. Tardive dyskinesia is going to be listed in every AP,AAP's PI. It is the incidence that matters.
  13. Keep a barrier of .7 millimeter visqueen plastic sheeting between you and them. I'm serious. I was in college during the very beginning of the HIV crisis, it is about barriers. This is just one example, available at the hardware store.
  14. I found this at wikipedia: "Its antipsychotic effects are likely caused by D2 and/or 5-HT2A antagonism, whereas its antidepressant effects at lower doses may be mediated by preferential D2/D3 autoreceptor blockade, resulting in increased postsynaptic activation."
