  1. Edit to ask a Question. I may have to ask Dunkin this question, but I thought maybe someone might know. When it comes to getting the hazelnut, do they put in the "shots" (unsweetened) or the "swirl" (sweetened). Thanks in advance.
  2. Thanks for the information @Unstrung Harp Thanks all for all your help. I'll let you know how things go when I get the chance to try one.
  3. That's why I mentioned hazelnut in my OP. I like hazelnut.
  4. I'd like to make sure I say everything in the right way/right order so that it gets made the way I want it.
  5. Thanks for the information @Fluent In Silence I forgot to mention in my OP is that I'd be getting it from a place like Dunkin Donuts. (since that's the closest coffee place to me)

    Iced Lattes

    I'm looking into trying iced lattes. I just want to make sure I order them right. (so I have the best chance of enjoying them) I know a few details that I know I'll want: -- medium sized, hazelnut flavor, milk, whip cream -- Is there anything I'm forgetting/need to add? Is there something I don't have to say because it is included by default? I know it's a strange post, but I do thank you guys in advance for your replies.
  7. I use a pill box to organize my medications. Can't advise on the time issue as I can remember when it's time to take my meds.
  8. I agree that it depends on your doctor. I've been on benzos (mostly xanax) for over 10 years and have not had any trouble getting my script each month. (I'm in NY)
  9. Only one change since my last post in this thread but thought I'd update you anyways. Lithium 900mg/d - mood stabilization Clozapine 325mg/d - psychosis and mood stabilization Celexa 30mg/d - depression and anxiety Xanax 0.5mg 4 times a day (increased from 3 a day) - anxiety and panic attacks Pepcid 40mg/d - GERD/Acid Reflux Colace BID - IBS-C
  10. Is it possible to take 2 benzos? (one for everyday use and another for breakthrough symptoms)?
  11. My current cocktail: Clozapine 325mg bedtime - psychosis and mood stabilization Lithium 900mg (300mg AM / 600mg bedtime) - mood stabilization / anti-manic Celexa 30mg AM - depression and anxiety Xanax 0.5mg TID - anxiety Pepcid 40mg bedtime - GERD Colace BID - IBS-C
  12. Happy New Year 2020!

  13. The only way I've heard of using 2 benzos is you take one benzo regularly for your anxiety and the other you take as needed for breakthrough symptoms.
  14. I've a great experience with clozapine. Been on it almost 10 years now with no issues.
  15. I really like clozapine. I've been on it for a little over 9 years now and it really stabilizes my mood and rids my psychosis.
  16. I took Zyprexa when I was IP for mania and psychosis. It worked fast and well. I was given 5mg at first then upped to 10mg. It helped, but I couldn't tolerate the restlessness I got from it.
  17. There are several medications that can be used for akathisia: cogentin, artane, amantadine, propranolol, benzos
  18. I've been on clozapine for 9 and 1/2 years. I've been doing well. I've not had any issues with my wbc. I've not developed myocarditis. I can't judge the constipation aspect because I have IBS-C (dxed before clozapine, but I don't think it made it worse). In the US, you do once week for 6 months, then every other week for 6 months. Then after a year it's once a month. Since I've been on clozapine for so long, I go once a month. It's worth it IMO. I've been fortunate not to have gained weight from clozapine. As far as the diabetes goes, I've not had any issues with my blood sugar. I get fasting blood work done once every 6 months to continually check for that. I do make sure to watch what I eat for general health anyways. When I was started on clozapine, I was started on 25mg every night for the first week. It was then increased in 25mg increments every week till I got to 300mg. I take my clozapine all at bedtime to reduce daytime sedation. I don't get sleepy during the day from clozapine. I don't find that I have any cognitive issues from clozapine. I don't get the drooling side effect. I don't get eps, akathisia or tremors from clozapine. I think I covered everything. If you have further questions, please ask.
  19. I'm on clozapine. Have been for 9 years. If you have questions, let me know and I'll do my best to answer them.
  20. There are 2 medications that are FDA approved to use for TD: Ingrezza: https://www.ingrezza.com/ and Austedo: https://www.austedo.com/tardive-dyskinesia
  21. I took eszopiclone (Lunesta) years ago, when I was having insomnia issues from the medication I was taking at the time. It worked very well. I was asleep w/in minutes of taking the pill and I slept the full 8 hours. I don't remember any side effects from it at all.
  22. Why not just ask about taking Zyprexa and Paxil instead?
