  1. Yep I did and she said it's listed but not a huge likelihood. Plus I'm already on a cocktail and haven't been "poisoned" yet. I can't tell if it's working or not since it's been a few days but I'll take a placebo effect if it makes me calmer lol.
  2. I take Zyprexa 20 mg a day and Adderall 30 mg a day to counteract the sluggishness I'd feel with just the Zyprexa. (Also Xanax 0.5 mg PRN). Adderall doesn't seem to exacerbate my psychotic symptoms, thank goodness. What I'm worried about is I was also prescribed the new antidepressant Trintellix, which when I typed it into the interaction checker, said there's a major interaction that can cause serotonin syndrome! I had thought only antidepressants could cause that, but it was officially on drugs.com, so I'm not sure if I should be worried or not?
  3. I asked my doctor this, but you know how they are...knowledgeable yet not always empathetic. So I'm asking actual users of the medication, am I super likely to sleepwalk? I am very afraid to do so...one thing I hate about psychosis is doing things I don't remember. So thinking I might while I sleep... I'm prescribed 5 mg. I hate being afraid to take it and yes I know I can cut it in half or talk to my doctor...I'm purposely looking for anecdotal evidence. Either to ease my mind or at least warn me.
  4. Okay that sounds about right. So the vitamin at night is "worn off" by morning time? And yeah I really try to not have much acidic stuff. Good idea about the tums as long as I don't take too much. Especially since I'm type 1 diabetic. So sometimes I get mad I have to treat my blood sugar and then have to wait an hour for Adderall.
  5. I was wondering if vitamins affect Adderall at all if you take them at separate times. I can't figure out how to change my signature so I'll just say, I take 30 mg Adderall IR a day, 20 mg Zyprexa Zydis a day, then a fish oil, ginkgo boloba, and a multivitamin. I know that eating with Adderall makes it less effective, especially acidic things with vitamin C. What worries me is the Zyprexa snows me a bit, and my job requires actual thinking (not saying no other jobs do but I mean mine is tutoring). I don't know if the vitamins will mess up Adderall even more. I can't afford to be a dumb zombie
  6. I've posted on and off for maybe about a year about my friend growing distant. The one who was always there, a constant companion, etc. Then she went away to college 10 months ago and got so distant. She never wrote me and would get mad at me for asking where she was. She'd go forever without talking to me (forever meaning days but it was a huge change from all day every day). Well, now she's just gone. She hasn't talked to me in 7 weeks today. She never went more than 3 days in the end. The last conversation was fine, and yet she's gone. I tried writing her, not even obsessively. I backed off
  7. Thank you guys, I apologize, I forgot about this post. I'll try typing it into a search engine with those prompts. I'm bipolar 1 apparently (according to my last hospital visit a year ago, just haven't been able to update my stuff in a bit). I buy Kirkland brand (Costco) well my parents do. I'm hoping there aren't freaky fillers but maybe there are? I know fish oil can help with mood too but I only take one pill so I'm not sure. It's just very strange. I started smoking temporarily because I was agitated and so I'm sure that's not helping things.
  8. I know this sounds stupid, but can taking vitamins change your mental state for the worse? I really can't think of any other change I've made in the last few days so I'm just trying to think through it like I would if I suddenly was getting hives or something after changing one thing. 3 days ago I started taking just one fish oil pill and one multivitamin pill a day. I don't think they affect the mind, especially in normal doses, but ever since the second day, I've been mad, paranoid, depressed, and just feel like something isn't right. Kind of like before I have a psychotic break. But I've be
  9. To the first response, don't worry, you aren't being too blunt and it was helpful. I mainly am with guys who are sweet when it comes to relationships, but very needy. As for casual encounters I've had in the past, they were mainly drunk guys. But those are the ones I wasn't afraid of. To second response though, yes, you're so right! That's actually exactly how I feel. That it suddenly replaces the closeness and intensity of the emotional part, with sex...and as much as I like sex, I also agree it is NOT the same. So that may be my issue. I do still feel weird that I feel this way when there ha
  10. I wasn't sure where to post this, but it shouldn't cause triggers because I've not been sexually assaulted. It's a weird issue and I know I need to talk to a counselor about this but until I find one (recently switched to state health insurance), I just want people's ideas or hear that maybe someone understands. I'm ashamed of this weird anxiety or whatever it is. Okay, so I'm an adult, I know sex is normal, and I like it, etc. But here's where it gets weird. If anyone I trust finds me sexually attractive, I suddenly feel betrayed and hurt. There is no reason for it! I haven't been raped. I ha
  11. So for the longest time, I had been told not to worry about off brands because they're the same. Now, recently, I've suddenly been hearing (even from medical professionals) that it is not. I recently had to get on state insurance and change pharmacies, and some of my pills I got aren't overly common, like the picture of the Adderall wasn't even on the drugs.com site, although it is supposedly legit. Couldn't find pictures online anywhere. Part of my illness is paranoia, and the change in meds isn't helping. How different are generics really?
  12. Yeah. Well I mean the friendship itself has been about a year and a half. About 10 months in she went away, and has barely been there for 2. Just clarifying because I didn't know if you had thought the friendship was 2 months, or the estrangement. It wouldn't have been so hard if she hadn't been an almost constant companion for almost a year. It is good to know people understand. And if you meant at least its only 2 months so maybe it'll turn around, I really hope do. It IS very painful. I'm sorry you had to go through an even more severe one. I just wish I knew why. I haven't been so crazy la
  13. I have posted about this person before, and it's a different issue than before. Before, my best friend who I had fallen in love with and who had taken care of me when I was having a lot of episodes, went away to college. At first she was just going to a different school, but now she's moved to the city and doesn't have to commute anymore. My feelings aside, because those are already hopeless since she would never love me and it was sort of codependent anyway... She acts like she doesn't care. She's taking very hard classes. She works a lot. I get that. But she acts like she doesn't care we hav
  14. I would be interested in knowing why I jump around. It could be any number of things. Schizophrenic symptoms. Abandonment when I was a baby. An abusive relationship that ended 2 years ago but lasted 3 years. The person I love who treats me like shit. I don't know... I'd love to find out. What happens is I get on meds that are good for my MI and then they'll make me feel flat and disinterested, and I'll search for pleasure and interests. So yeah, when I'm healthy, this never seems to happen... It is good to know that this is a real thing though, and that I'm not a freak of nature. And yeah, D
  15. This might be long, but maybe someone will be bored and up late to read it. Is it possible to be addicted to almost anything that makes you not depressed? But not be an addict? The name doesn't bother me... I just don't know what I am. I've never done a harder drug than weed. Have definitely abused Adderall before, but try to take it responsibly. Had a LONG run with alcohol but only when I was sad or bored. If I had hobbies or a purpose, or was happy, I didn't want to drink. I can't stop from bingeing when I do. But I can go without it if there's something else. I'll cut to the chase becaus
