  1. 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.
  2. Hey CB -- I should probably know the answer to this considering I've been dx'ed as BP for most of my life at this point. But I'm a rapid cycler and it's very rare for my moods to last more than a week (especially mania). Well, I've just had my crash from a period of mania lasting 2-3 weeks. And I've been so tired. Like sleeping all day for a couple days, despite horrific nightmares (those are normal for me). So my question is: Is being this tired normal after such a period of mania? Thanks in advance for your insights. --Alice
  3. Since my mood has improved, I've been having problems with boredom. I get bored easily, yet I don't have the energy to do anything about it. Does anyone else have this problem? How do you cope with it?
  4. I haven't slept for 4 days and I'm wondering what would happen if I keep going on like this. I started taking sleeping pills yesterday but they don't seem to work. I'm kinda losing it and seeing and hearing things that aren't there probably because of tiredness and it's kinda why I can't sleep too now... What would happen if I keep going on like this, I just can't switch off..
  5. Do anyone take the lexapro/wellbutrin combo and add in anything for focus, anxiety, energy, etc.? After fish years on Lexapro it just wasn't cutting it for me and my psychiatrist wanted to try some newer meds. I had some horrible experiences on Pristine and Brintellix (and spent hundreds of dollars for the pleasure thanks to incomplete coverage of these by my insurance) before going back to the Lexapro. The magic happened when I added 150ml Wellbutrin XL to my 20mg of Lexapro, seriously a miraculous combo for me! However, I'm still struggling with compulsively overeating, some hair pul
  6. Any inspiration? Lately I've been so tired of fighting off this anxiety and depression. I cut back on my medication (lexipro) because I didn't feel like myself. I was so manic and hyper all the time. But now I feel like I'm back at square one. I just want to not have to fight anymore. I'm so tired, all I want to do is sleep but I can't seem to without having disturbing dreams. I've lost motivation, I feel this terrible dread in my chest. I'm sick of the thoughts racing through my head. I feel like there's always a buzzing in my head. I just feel so out of it. People will talk to me, but I'm
  7. I've had enough. Enough of playing fair. Enough of being the responsible one even though I'm not. I'm tired of trying. And this isn't about suicide. It's about not wanting to keep going. My wife and I are both PTSD and depressed. I add anxiety to the mix. We have two beautiful adopted children who are great kids, great grades, good people. I would never do anything to hurt them or hold them back so I will keep going on. I am capable beyond most people. I can't be as good as I could because I can't. But I've had enough of bad people in our lives shitting on us. I am struggling where to even beg
  8. Up until last December I was taking Lithium 1000mg, blood level usually 0.8/0.9mmol/L. For 1 week in December I was very ill in the intensive care unit with pneumonia which I developed after surgery. My lithium levels were raised and my dose was reduced to 600mg. I have been taking that dose ever since. My mood has been very stable until recently. Over the past couple of weeks I've been feeling stressed, anxious, tired, irritable, isolating myself more, spending more time in bed and have a generally low mood. There has been no life changes or stressors. Yesterday morning I went to se
  9. OK, so I take 75mg of invega sustenna and when I go to sleep at night I have no problems it is only when I wake up that I feel tired and want to go back to sleep but I CANT my mind/body just wont shut down but I feel tired and its the same during the day sometimes il feel tired and just can't fall asleep... this all started happening when I started taking invega... anyone else experiencing this or can tell me what is going on or anything I would greatly appreciate it.
  10. Hello, I'm Connor and I am bipolar (2) but on the ALMOST bipolar 1 side of things. I am taking 50 mg of Seroquel and 200 mg of Lamictal. Both help with balancing my mood and seroquel is doing a great job at making me fall asleep. Seroquel even seems to be helping my appetite be supressed...quite odd right? I've lost weight. Anyway, I am extremely depressed still and find it hard to even get out of bed. What other med could I take that could make me happy again? I don't just rely on meds just so you know, I go to therapy too. I am so antisocial, paranoid, anxious, and cry a lot more
  11. I started abilify 10 mg last week, and it is making me super sleepy. I always feel like I am going to doze off. But it seems when I am at work I am not as tired. Just the days I am off and sitting around its hard to stay awake. Is there anything to combat this?
  12. Does any here take naltrexone and adderall? I've never had a problem with opiates but I am in recovery. I take naltrexone to help with cravings for alcohol and to help with my eating disorder. I take adderall for my ADD, and I take it as prescribed. I'm having a tooth extracted in preparation for a dental implant and the doctor is going to give me pain killers. I've gone off my naltrexone in advance so I can take the opiate based pain killers. I've been off it about 5 days now and have another 2 days to go before my surgery. I decided to go with the opiate based pain killers because I had
  13. I'm upset, but not really depressed-depressed. I got called for work last night but I was too tired to go, so tired that I hadn't charged my phone. I didn't find out until this morning. Waited all day for maybe a call today, but there was nothing. So a little bit ago I got a call to go in to a firm to work, but then the company cancelled. Money is tight right now. I did work 32 hours this week, but I was hoping for 40. I feel very very tired from insomnia, my seasonal allergies (which have been so bad that I've been nauseated for over two weeks) and the heat, plus other issues. I'm taking my
  14. I've been lurking here for a quite a while. I think I even made some posts a while back. Anyway, to quickly introduce myself...My name is Susan, I live in Northeast USA, I"m 39 years old and have been depressed since I remember. I can recall being 5 years old asking God to let me die because I didn't want to live anymore. I've been on meds for 19 years. I've pretty much taken everything there is and my doctor (who is awesome) has suggested that if things don't get better I might want to try ECT. I've heard some really scary things about it..like memory loss and not being able to recognize you
  15. Does anybody here have hypersomnia (sleeping too much) as their primary disorder? I am always tired and have been tired for as long as I can remember. I have to sleep at least 12-14 hours a night & a lot more during the day if I don't make myself get up...but I'm still always tired. I take stimulants (adderall) for adhd, and sometimes even that doesn't wake me up enough to get out of bed...I'm depressed too but maybe I'm depressed because I'm tired & not the other way around.
  16. I have a hard time trusting people and an even harder time sharing my feelings. I have been reading some of the stuff shared on this site and I realized maybe I don't have to deal with this alone anymore. The normal people in my life don't have clue and when I try to explain I get these blank stares like OMG, I don't want to know this. It is easier for them if they can just pretend I am normal too. They diagnosed me with bi-polar disorder about 4 months ago. I have the one with the crazy highs and the evil lows. I have been self medicating for more years than I remember until I ended up
  17. I'm new. I'm not new to bipolar, but it keeps me on my toes. I have trouble sleeping when I should, at night, and I'm trying to work out new meds with my psychiatrist to help me sleep. I drank too much until recently (8 mos.) and now I'm working to drink only infrequently. I'm having more success than I've had in the last eleven years. I chew tobacco and am working on quitting. It'll be the patch for me. I've tried cold turkey, and it's no fun and I can't do it. I start a lot of sentences with "I" when I'm having to write but am not at my best. Sorry. Make my sentences more interesting I will
