  1. Naltrexone has given me no urges to drink. I don't WANT alcohol anymore. But my habit could not care less about what I want. The drug has helped, don't get me wrong. I no longer feel the need to drink to self-medicate my anxiety. I honestly just don't think about drinking at all until I get home in my chair, my fiancé is drinking, we're watching the news, and I feel like it's just TIME for me to have a drink even though I don't particularly want one. The drug has actually helped immensely, as I didn't think anything could get me to stop self-medicating my anxiety. I probably did som
  2. I think he'll respect me on this once I talk to him about it, which I haven't really done in a clear manner. I don't think he takes me seriously because I've talked about cutting down on my drinking a lot of times before and I haven't really done anything about it. And I honestly don't think he noticed that I have already cut down my alcohol consumption in half... and I never actually said anything to him about it. But that doesn't mean I still don't drink too much! I'll be honest -- I decided to start this new goal because of weight loss. I have gained so much in the past year since I really
  3. He does, and is not willing to limit his drinking around me. Actually, last night, he kind of peer-pressured me into drinking. It's something I'm going to discuss with him tonight. I know we have fun drinking together. I get it. And it's not just me who has to get out of the habit of drinking. He's got to get out of the habit of me drinking as well. But he's just gotta accept that I'm sticking to a couple of drinks on special occasions and maybe a drink -- and by a drink, I literally mean ONE drink, not like the "one drinks" he makes -- every week or so. When I have control over my drinking, t
  4. Well, I'm definitely unable to move, as I own my house outright and don't have to pay a mortgage. However, I'm studying to get my teaching certification and hope to be off disability within a year and be a teacher. I'll be married in June, but my fiance is a bigger drinker than I am. I'm not sure what changes I can make. Any ideas? I do think a therapist will help, even though my reasons for drinking aren't exactly complex. I may not be an alcoholic, but I am a problem drinker and I'm not ashamed to admit that I need help in fixing that.
  5. I'm not an alcoholic, but I do abuse alcohol. I want to give up alcohol except for the occasional drink here or there and for special occasions. It's become such a habit to come home and drink that it's been hard to break... especially when my fiance is also drinking -- and peer-pressuring me. I've abused alcohol since I started drinking at 18, but it only happened occasionally. Now it happens nearly every night. For my general health and for weight loss (and because I don't want to become an alcoholic), this is unacceptable to me. A lot of it is self-medicating my anxiety, but it's just not t
  6. What time of the day do you take it? I was just prescribed it today for alcohol abuse.
  7. I just got prescribed naltrexone because of my alcohol abuse. However, I'm not sure when to take it. If I take it in the morning, will it last me until the evening when I usually drink? Or should I go ahead and take it in the evening? Thanks for your help!
  8. Did Saphris cause you to eat more or did it just affect your weight by taking it? It is my newest med, so that could be the culprit...

  10. I'm unsure if I gained any weight when I started Geodon. However, I'm trying to lose weight, and I'm unable to. Could the Geodon be preventing this? I've also started Saphris for sleep. Could that be preventing it?
  11. tryp!!! How are you??? I was thinking about you not too long ago!!!
  12. Thank you very much! I really think it is the two Diet Dr Peppers each day. Or at least I'm going to tell myself that so I don't have to try to give up my horrible, horrible addiction!
  13. Well, I never became stupid this time. However, my feet fall asleep very easily since taking it. (I'm always sitting on one of my feet... so they always fell asleep sometimes, but now it's ALL of the time.) I've gained about 80 pounds since I last posted. (Not due to meds. I made A LOT of horrible caloric decisions.) I am now engaged and need to lose weight for my wedding. At what dosage did people get the side effect of weight loss?
  14. Officially in remission!!!
