Alpam Posted October 22, 2009 Share Posted October 22, 2009 My Pdoc has said to me that he wants to cut down on my medication and simplify things which I think is a good idea. Currently I am taking: 1. Benztropine (for Akathesia) 2. Citalopram (Depression) 3. Clonazepam (Anxiety) 4. Dexamphetamine (Fatigue / ADD) 5. Seroquel (occasional PRN sleep med) 6. Zyprexa (Mood Stabiliser) I have not had a straight diagnosis on my brain cooties but have been told I have Atypical Depression, Insomnia and possibly Borderline Personality Disorder, ADD and GAD with panic disorder. I have just upped my dose of Citalopram from 40mg to 60mg and my pdoc and I decided that if this does not work to try a MAOI either Parnate or Nardil. If I do go along that path I want to take as little else as possible. What I was thinking was: 1. Parnate / Nardil 2. Dexamphetamine (keep using on a smaller dose) If the MAOI Works I would like to cut out the Clonazepam, and possibly the Seroquel, Zyprexa and Benztropine. What I really want is something that will elevate my mood (nothing has really worked so far), reduce anxiety (I had to take 2 days off this week due to anxiety) and allow me to sleep at night and concentrate during the day. Is this achievable? and which of the two should I be going with if I end up down this path. I know about all the diet restrictions and it's something I am willing to endure.
