jarn Posted April 21, 2009 Share Posted April 21, 2009 Is there any reason why people shouldn't be on 2/multiple AAPs? When I was trying Ziprasidone one of the reasons my psychopharmacologist took me off Seroquel cold turkey was that I was going onto another AAP. Now that I'm back on Seroquel he's suggesting Pregabalin as a mood stabilizer (I posted in the cocktail forum re: this as I'm not impressed with what I've read about it). Why couldn't I be on 2 AAPs at once? I like how they work with my brain, though I don't love all of their side effects. Is he concerned b/c I wasn't totally compliant with the Seroquel (lowered my dose without talking to him) that multiple AAPs aren't for me? Probably not if he was willing to have me on Ziprasidone only. I noticed that other people on here seem to be on multiple AAPs and I think for stabilization this would optimal for me - I haven't in the past found mood stabilizers (lamotrigine, lithium) to work all that well for me, i.e., they haven't stabilized me. Maybe in conjuction with Seroquel this one will but if I don't find it helps I wanted to explore the option of 2 AAPs but I wasn't sure if there was some valid medical reason not to go that route.
