  1. My own fault, I was doing fraudulent and forging prescriptions. No bueno and psychiatrist didn't want any parts of it or be involved at all. 2nd pdoc this has happened with. I need to find some permanency in a providr but it is just so hard. It looks like I am doctor shopping like crazy because every month I am filling from a new psychiatrist. About the adderall and the generic manufacturers, don't be afraid to ask the pharmacist if they can order a specific brand of generic manufacturer, sometimes they can and sometimes they can't but it won't hurt to ask. If pdoc started it because
  2. Doc took me off all conmtrolled substances Any particular reason she wants to taper you off Adderall and Cymbalta? Are you unstable on your current meds or are they working for you?
  3. In my experience, with Vyvanse and Seroquel in particular, I would not eat for the entirety of my day but after taking roughly 100mg of Seroquel I became crazy hungry. So I would eat roughly my entire days worth of calories in a binge episode. I wasn't binge eating on purpose it was just the effect of this medication combination, which I think is pretty unhealthy. However, if it's working for you amd you are having positive results then you have to consider that in your decision whether or not to stay on the combo. However even despite the binge eating at night, I really never gained more tha
  4. It has taken many years to find one who actually does. I was beginning to lose faith in psychiatry until I finally found this guy who legitimately cares. He doesn't accept insurance but what do I care if I am getting superb treatment ya know
  5. Glad to hear you're doing better now, though. Sometimes our bodies and mind are so sensitive to particular medication changes or even changes in dose. It's better to be safer than sorry in certain circumstances and taper slowly up or down, it will usually help with withdrawal symptoms if you're having a particularly troublesome time with side effects or withdrawal. I was just taking Vraylar, Rexulti, and Seroquel and my new psychiatrist didn't feel comfortable prescribing 3 antipsychotics together because of the risk for tardive dyskenisia. I felt uneasy about simply dropping the 200mg of Sero
  6. Glad to hear it's working well for you. What do you take for akathisia? I had it terrible when I first began Rexulti but we took me bag down to 0.5mg and slowly worked my way back up; are you using the klonopin for akathisia? Do you feel like you're going through any Latuda withdrawals? I also have low mood in the winter but I guess my meds are doing so well that I am actually feeling pretty good in this quarantine.
  7. What dose of Latuda were you on prior to being on your current dosage of 40mg? And how do you feel the Lithium is working for you? I remember being on 1,350 mg a day of it and I am a pretty small guy so I'm surprised I stayed on it for almost 6-7 months. Latuda was also a miss for me, my Rexulti was replaced with Latuda 80 mg I think and I went into a bad depression, but how is it working for you?
  8. Just met with the psychiatrist yesterday and he adjusted things a little. Reduced my stimulants to half of what my usual dose is so I'll see how I adjust to that and swapped Seroquel 200mg out for Ambien 10mg, anyway, here are my current meds: Dexedrine Spansules 15mg x4 capsules in the morning Rexulti 2mg Vraylar 3mg Paxil 30mg Lyrica 300mg BID Ambien 10mg qhs
  9. I am going with the wonderful paroxetine hydrohloride at 30mg every day. I take it for social anxiety, panic disorder and generalized anxiety. Without it I am so reserved and unsocial, afraid to talk with people or even go to class where the room is filled with over 50 other students, my thoughts race and I get panic attacks over things like leaving my house to get groceries, going to a family dinner or cookout, and sometimes the anxiety stems from my negative thinking patterns (i.e. thinking about your appearance and then "reading people's mind" since I will tell myself that others must be

  12. When I took vortioxetine I found it activating like others have said and I also found it was not good for my bipolar disorder and threw me into hypomania. I didn't get irritable or become irritated like I did on wellbutrin or have crazy amounts of energy like I did on Prozac. Because of my anxiety disorders, I tens to stick to the sedating ADs instead of the activating ones. Is there a more sedating SSRI or AD that is as wonderful for anxiety disorders other than Paxil?
  13. I see you take doral qAM. What do you take it for? It is marketed as a hypnotic sleeping aid but I assume you're taking it for other reasons
  14. Paxil and Vraylar. I can’t take either drug alone, without Paxil I’m very socially phobic and without Vraylar I become very manic
