Wooster Posted April 7, 2008 Share Posted April 7, 2008 So here's the new plan... starting lamictal (EVER SO SLOW titration that will take a couple of months to get to destination dose of 200mg) concurrent with starting levothyroxine (0.025mg baby dose for the "borderline sluggish" thyroid) double down on the omega 3 fish oils (4 caps/day instead of two) niacin 3000 iu of vitamin D (as according to most recent labs, I'm still "hypovitaminosis" level) keep the calcium citrate (to help the vit D absorption) and potentially raising Cymbalta to 90mg while keeping 4 mg lorazepam and taper slurroquel when the lamictal kicks in For those of you playing along at home who missed our last episode, current Rx includes 60 mg Cymbalta 3-4 mg lorazepam on a schedule, not prn any more 2000 iu vitamin D 2 omega 3 caps calcium citrate and 600 mg of slurroquel This is what happens when I have a GP and psyNP appointment in the same week. Both, however, state there "shouldn't be any problems" with the levothyroxine and lamictal at the same time as well as the niacin except that it's bad science to change more than one variable at a time. But given that we're trying to keep me out of hospital with all my toes and internal organs intact, maybe it's fine to change up lots at once. Any thoughts from the brain trust? Peace, Wooster (who has spent the weekend obsessively watching old episodes of Bones on line while knitting a sock so I could make good on promise to a friend about making her an orange sock monkey... who knew non-blaze orange socks would be so difficult to find this time of year in the People's Republic of Oregon?)
