My psych is willing to change meds


Recommended Posts

Hi all

Now quickly I am on 375mg effexor, 900mg lithium, 25mg seroquel daily and have prn's of 10-20mg trimazapan (spelling) and 5-10mg zyrexa.

I am 5'7" and about 190 pounds!!!  I train everyday for an hour plus, yet I cant seem to shake the food cravings and being fat.

Any suggestions!!  My psych says she is willing to change meds for me if we think that is the problem.  She moved me from zyprrexa to seroquel since zyprexa made me crave sugar badly.

I am not happy this way and want to be good physically and mentally.

well apparently I am only depressed with anxiety and some minor SI problem.  She thought I might have been bipolar and yes I do get swings but generally I am just down most of the time.

I went to training (kickboxing) last night and just about wept at my own lack of ability - my joints hurt etc....  Maybe I have been training too much but I still felt like Jabba the Hut compared to most of the others there.  This is with taking 5mg of zyprexa before I went!!!!

I know I cant do much at the moment as next week is my black belt exam but after then, I am really going to have to go on a diet and see about changing the meds.

Hey - I am 5'7 and am at 205 after gaining 20 fucking pounds in the last 2 months so I know how you feel.  If you are working out and still aren't happy, you need to look at what you are eating.  I was on Weight Watchers for awhile a few years back and got down to my skinniest since early HS, 158.  Damn, I was hot.  But you need to make sure you are eating enough and the right things.  And if you work out too much, your body doesn't have time to heal, which is important.  Maybe a regimented program would help you.  I like WW more than Jenny craig or any of the programs that don't let you eat normal food, you lose weight, but put it back on once you stop eating "their" food.  And the WW meetings are great - very empowering, although it leads to obsessing about food.  Anyway, I am writing my current weight off until I get my brain back together (humpty dumpty syndrome- I fell off the wall a few months ago), but until then I do feel like shit about myself.  I don't want to go out, don't wanna date, don't wanna get a job, think everyone is saying "Hey check out the fat chick"  Maybe your body needs to be 190 now.  And try to appreciate yourself more for who you are, not what you weigh.  IMO, it is then that the weight will come off.
