Guest mommymental Posted November 25, 2007 Share Posted November 25, 2007 Hi- Long time listener first time caller. I am feeling a bit unwell at the moment, which is to say all the universe is a black hole of angst. Dx is BiPolar II with PTSD, anxiety etc. Current cocktail is as such: Lamictal 250mg at bed Ativan .5-1mg x 4day Klonopin 1mg at bed Neurontin 600mg x 3day Concerta 54mg (am) Progesterin only birth control pill WellbutrinXL 150mg (am) Risperdal 2mg at bed (in process of weaning off) So here is my question: Pdoc wants to push back up the Risperdal to 3mg and do the WellbutrinXL 150 at morning and again night. Does this make sense for a depressive episode? I have only been on the Wellbutrin 3.5 weeks. The deep despairing-can't-get-out-of-bed-to-see-my-beautiful-kids depression has been about 2 weeks. I have a PTSD anniversary coming so this is not a good time for me to be depressed but how does upping the Risperdal back up help? Also should I be taking an XL med twice a day or all at once? I hope someone can offer some advice. I have worked really hard to lower the risperdal and I hate to see it go back up. I trust my pdoc greatly but wanted some added input from the patient's perspective. TIA! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
