  1. Hi again. Quick question for those of you who have tried Vraylar... I've been on it @ 1.5 mg for a few days and it's making me sleepy to the point that I have to take a nap in my car on my lunch hour. Has anyone experienced sleepiness as a side effect but had it go away after a while?
  2. I just started Vraylar and have been taking it for 1.5 weeks. It had dramatically helped my symptoms. I am out of my depression? No more sucidal thoughts, etc. However, I am extremely drowsy! I take it at night and even the next day all I want to do is sleep. I am a very busy person and it is taking a toll on me. Is this a short term side effect from getting used to it or something that will not go away? Not sure I want to keep taking it if this is not going to go away. Doctor is out of town right now.
  3. Hello CB. I posted before a year or so ago and now im back. I wish everyone good health. I was in the hospital and released last week. Ive been on Geodon for almost 2 weeks and take it at 8am and 6 pm, 80mg at each dose. A total of 160 mg daily. Everyday I get very tired around 11am till 2 or 3pm. The night dose doesn't seem to bother me as much. I take 900mg lithium, .5mg k-pin, 3.125mg corig (blood pressure), 60mg Cymbalta, fish oil, and vitamin D at 8am with the Geodon and take these again minus the Cymbalta again at 8pm, 2 hours after my night Geodon dose. I have taken everything except the Geodon for 6 months prior to the hospital, so I do not suspect the Cymbalta or lithium, I did start klonipin in the hospital but was on Ativan before that. I am wondering if the drowsiness will get better with time or if I should explore taking it all at night. The hospital Dr said I could take it all at night but I worry my jealous delusions may return in the day if I don't split dose. I have also read some people say they are real groggy and foggy headed when they take it all at night. Any one with experience please reply. Be well, Brandon
  4. So I have been sleeping for 3 or 4 hours at a time in the middle of the day since starting seroquel. I get sleepy (admittedly not super sleepy but enough to interfere with my work) when I am doing something sedentary like reading on my computer. Anyone experience this? I would be grateful for any tips to change this.
  5. In the last four months I've moved from a Vyvanse/Adderall pairing, which was gradually making me more and more anxious, as well as leaving my heart constantly pounding, to a Concerta/Ritalin pairing. While I find the effects of Concerta and Ritalin far more smooth, I'm having almost the opposite problem with these stimulants than the prior ones. Fatigue. At first I thought I was simply sleepy, but when I'd lay down to -try- and sleep, I'd just lay there in a dozing lull. Increasing the dose helped somewhat, however this is still a symptom that annoys me. Feedback? Anyone? Bueller?
  6. I've perused the boards for similar posts, but thought I'd throw out an arguably selfish request for evaluations of my particular mix. I know the answers are throughout the boards, but I hope to come to Cocktails for a tailored response. I know redundant posting is faux pas on message boards. In return I can only respond to threads where my input would be valuable. I'll do so. Current meds: Lamotrigine (150 mg 2x daily), Latuda (80mg 1x daily), Escitalopram (10mg 1x daily), Bupropion XL 24 hr (300mg 1x daily), Amantadine (100mg 3x daily), Clonazepam (0.5mg 3x daily), Methylphenidate (50mg distributed throughout day) History and Background: I've seen the same psychiatrist for years and he trusts and works closely with me given our history. I am diagnosed with major depression which is persistent and has been for years. Another significant diagnosis is one or another form of anxiety - primarily social. No panic problems, thankfully. I am doing as well as can be and function well consistently. I can tolerate medication changes well given experience. Current Questions: (1) Sleepiness, and Memory Problems Sleepiness has always been an issue, and I accept it to a big degree. I've learned to time dosing properly for the most part. Memory problems have grown and are very apparent in recent months. I blame 5+ years of Clonazepam at 0.5mg 3x daily. Latuda and Escitalopram do a lot for my particular anxiety. I'd like to move benzos to an as needed basis. I was actually given stimulants to combat sleepiness - nothing to do with attention disorder (1a) What can I change to minimize these, especially memory? Is tapering off Clonazepam feasible or adequate? What could be upped or added to mitigate its loss? (1b) What might be causing memory problems other than Clonazepam? Will awareness and cognition improve with its removal or is the damage done? (1c) Given the necessity and value of much of my cocktail, what can I do to mitigate sleepiness with little change? (1d) Is there any subset of drugs among those I'm taking that could be most blameworthy for cognitive problems or sleepiness? That is, is there a simple switch? (2) Akathesia, EPS, and Options Cogentin and its class are just not an option for me. Blurred vision, chemical dry mouth, and cognitive problems are just not worth it. I save it for dystonia in the emergency room. Amantadine has worked pretty well, but I cannot afford it on my upcoming insurance. This is with certainty. I don't know how Propranolol will balance with the other meds. (2a) Does anyone see implications of a switch from Amantadine to Propranolol given this cocktail? (2b) Any suggestions for akathisia given this mix? Cogentin is off the table. (2c) Are the effects of propranolol on the circulatory system, norepinephrine, and blood pressure contraindications with the rest of my meds (in your experience)? (3) Any other thoughts, experiences, advice, or criticism? Thanks! Past meds: Cymbalta (caused anxiety), Strattera (caused even more anxiety), Remeron (sleep oddities), Lithium (don't remember), Risperdal (extreme dystonia - thank goodness for Cogentin), Cogentin daily (dry mouth and very blurred vision), Xanax (very briefly - too strong), Focalin (dexmethylphenidate), Geodon (first breakthrough), other? Current meds: Lamotrigine (150 mg 2x daily), Latuda (80mg 1x daily), Escitolopram (10mg 1x daily), Bupropion XL 24 hr (300mg 1x daily), Amantadine (100mg 3x daily), Clonazepam (0.5mg 3x daily), Methylphenidate (50mg distributed throughout day)
