Likeabowlof0ranges Posted July 3, 2012 Share Posted July 3, 2012 Hi all, To start with, I've never taken an antipsychotic and I'm not even sure why I'm apprehensive since I'm usually not apprehensive to meds, and I'm quite open to most suggestions, if there is rationale that it will make me feel better. At the moment I'm seeing a new pdoc, because my last pdoc went on long term leave, unexpectedly and he was also unsure about whether I had MDD treatment resistant or bipolar II but I digress. I am currently taking Pristiq, Wellbutrin and Lithium which I am going to discontinue. I did not mind the lithium, but my bloods where not coming back well. My gp thinks that the therapeutic dose and the toxic dose is too similar for someone of my build, and brain chemical needs, which is unfortunate but there is not much to be done about it. I tried lamicital and it had no affect. I am supposed to take an atypical antipsychotic for mood stabilisation and to prevent the re occurence of hearing auditory hallucinations. My fears are that I will never get off an antipsychotic. That I am going to be numbed to the point of zombie - hood. Also, the vain one, I'm scared of gaining weight due to all of the side effects being listed as weight gain. I'm scared that if i gain weight I'll start purging again (recovered for like two years) I can't really afford to do that, as I have issues with the lining of my stomach, and I don't want to get sick, but I don't want to be fat. I'm sorry if this doesn't make much sense, I'm really tired and emotional today. Thank you for reading this if you made it all the way through Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
