Rabbit37 Posted May 26, 2006 Share Posted May 26, 2006 I'm having a pretty good experience, finally, with the cocktail I'm on. Symptoms are dramatically lessening, I feel relatively stable. A bit of depression creeps in now and then, and still a little noise in my head every so often, but sure as hell better than it was. So how much do I just suck up the side effects? I'm on depakote er, lamictal, risperdal, zoloft and celexa. Something - or several - are making me tired as hell. There are days when I can barely function without at least a couple of naps (1-2 hours each), on top of a long night's sleep. I exercise, eat right, and am trying hard to make positive changes in my life as far as stress is concerned. I also have the complaint that my hands shake. As an artist, this is most disconcerting. I want to get back, at least in part, to some of the work I was previously doing, but it's impossible right now. Pdoc has the attitude both of "it's just in my head", and "get over it and move on". I'm going to address these issues once again next week, but am just now sure how insistent I should be on whether there are better drugs simply regarding the side effects. I can see wanting to change meds because they're not working, but this isn't the case. Any suggestions? Am I being too whiny, and expecting too much?
