  1. I've been on 80mg Latuda for 4yrs at pm along with qty2 vistaril 50mg and qty1 50mg Topomax. I take 20mg fluoxetine and 200mg SR Wellbutrin am as well. I found out early on that I can take the topomax and vistaril with dinner or shortly after but not the Latuda. It makes me feel super agitated, uncomfortable like I'm crawling out of my skin. But if I wait and take it at bed, I just go to sleep and no issues. So I started that in 2012 and have been stable bipolar2 since. I don't recall the thing about having to eat. And no one has asked. Well just the last month I've gone slightly ma
  2. I have recently been placed on latuda. A few notes: its pretty much a sleeping pill. I have it take it right before bed, say 10pm for it to metabolize properly, its advised to be taken with 350 calories of food. Does anyone have a generalized concoction they take to achieve the 350 calories? any other suggestions to make a smooth transition into latuda. Coming off Effexor btw. 75 mg. Kinda sucks.
  3. About seven years ago I was diagnosed as anorexic along with other things. The meds I was given made me gain weight (which still makes me freak out sometimes). Anyway, of late I have just been off my feed, so to speak. Food doesn't taste good. I have a nutrional drink (nutribreakfast I think) in the am, maybe a yogurt cup in the afternoon, and a small serving of dinner. The only things that taste good are lemonade and pizza. Most of the time I just drink fluids. I know when I was first recovering, everything tasted so intense, so new. Maybe my current meds are affecting my taste. I could
  4. Hi all, I have a MAJOR issue. I am literally addicted to juice. I'll drink an almost 3 qt bottle a day. I can taste it always. When I drink it is is like heaven, I can't get enough. Nothing taste wise compares. I wake up in the middle of the night for more juice...I crave it so bad I just drink straight out of the bottle. Anyone else ever had this problem? Or a similar one? What did you find worked for you? My nurse told me to stop drinking so much, and dilute it. I tried diluting the juice but it only made the craving worse. The intensity wasn't there, and I ended up drinking m
  5. I'm probably going to restart taking Latuda this week and want to do it right. What foods do you personally eat that meet the calorie criteria and make it feel like the Latuda is being absorbed as much as possible?
  6. What frustrates me is that binge eating is never taken seriously by the Mental Health System. As a child I was morbidly obese and it was never taken seriously by doctors. I was always eating, mostly as a coping mechanism. I remember I was constantly checking the fridge for food, even after dinner. I just never stopped eating. I gained so much weight that it took me 6 years to lose it. The only thing doctors did, was tell my mom that I needed to eat vegetables.... and they also gave me a voucher for the gym which didn't help economically much either. It took my Mom installing a lock in th
  7. every time i change meds, i get a new food "obsession". for the last year that i was on parnate, i of course had to follow the MAOI diet, as well as eat a TON of fiber every day. so for about a year i ate nothing but nonfat greek yogurt with granola and berries, and peanut butter and jam sandwiches. (okay there were some other things too, like boatloads of fruit, but those were my two main meals every day). those were just about the only foods that didn't seem disgusting to me. now i'm off parnate (and most of my other meds) and all i want is chicken sandwiches and hummus. and until s
  8. I don't get paid until the end of next week, but I spent my last £12 on carb-tastic snacks from 99p store. I have hidden the food in a 9 litre box and am slowly making my way through it. every time my partner is out or asleep I get the box out and eat until I feel sick. then I lie down and sleep.
  9. I went to a Japanese restaurant in Japan Town in Los Angeles. I go up to the counter to order but the menu is all in Japanese. No problem, I think...I'll just order from the plate photos. Well, that doesn't work because I can't recognize anything on the plates as Food. There were some things that might have been eels, I don't know. The place seemed to be specializing in seafood. But the purpose of this post is that the food was fluorescent colors, colors that don't exist in nature, to my knowledge. Should I order the fluorescent pink things or the fluorescent green things? Not that they were f
  10. I just wanted to share. [if anyone else has success stories, or is going through a startup with a special diet, or anything else, feel free to post here! We can commiserate!] I was gluten, egg, dairy free for about four or five years. Then I started hitting "bumps in the road". I was living on my own, and going to school and it was really difficult to stick to the diet. Finally everything broke loose and I completely gave up a few months ago. I felt like shit, got really angry inside and generally irritable. My joints have been hurting and my skin has felt itchy- I've also been g
  11. I've never really seen this as an eating disorder a such but more of a SI thing but perhaps it fits in a little better here... I'm almost always either starving myself or binge eating when I feel guilty or particularly depressed and recently I have been using laxatives for the same reason. I know its not healthy but I want myself to suffer and by gaining excessive weight or not eating much/anything I am doing just that, suffering. Anyone else do this? Any CB thoughts on this would be great.
  12. I am currently working on 2 failing projects at work. One has the acronym CAKE. The other has the work "Turkey" in the organizations name. I am also slavishly working to prepare the board book and have spent far too long working on pie charts. If one more person posts on facebook about their cake, turkey or pie I am going to punch them. It is really disheartening to have one of your favorite foods permanency burned into my brain as a failure. Dammit I loved cake. Also I never want to deal with Minnesota land conservation statutes ever again. Fuck the person who started this project and l
  13. Okay, so.. My crazyboards blog title here used to be 'happiness is a warm pizza.' Now, I don't agree with that. Lots of things have happened to make me realize what kind of problem I have. When I was visiting my girlfriend, I was disappointed when we didn't eat as much as we could have. I stole a slice of pizza from her when her grandmother said it was okay, even though she didn't get to eat much of it at all. We went to a sushi bar, and I was pouting-- pouting-- when she told me to put a little plate back because we reached our 20 dollar budget. My whole life has revolved around food
