  2. clorazepate (Tranxene T-Tab) 15 mg 1 PO tid (45 mg): anxiety, panic attack prevention (I'd like to eventually get rid of this and just have PRN Xanax)
  3. desipramine (Norpramin) 50 mg 1 PO q AM: bipolar II depression
  4. MethylPro L-Methylfolate 15 mg 1 PO q AM: bipolar II depression, MTHFR gene mutations
  5. phendimetrazine (Bontril-PDM) 35 mg 2 PO tid (210 mg): obesity, and off-label for ADHD and idiopathic hypersomnia
  6. sertraline (Zoloft) 100 mg 1.5 PO q AM (150 mg): bipolar II depression, OCD, panic disorder
  7. vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) 50,000 IU 1 PO q wk: hypovitaminosis D

Thank you! Although I am probably going to be put on zyprexa zydis 10 mg daily in addition to the abilify at my pdoc appointment in about 10 days. In the future I'd like to decrease the Abilify to 30 mg, but for the moment I'm wanting to enjoy semi stability for a while longer. I have been taking the PRN zyprexa daily 5-10 mg for about 3 weeks I think at least now.

Holy polypharmacy. How are you feeling on this cocktail? Also, welcome!

Congrats! That must feel amazing! Also, much less to worry about. 

I'm great..no not really, but i'm stable. The only problem is very hard to wake up in the mornings, that's a little price, i hope my psychiatrist take me one antipsychotic (quetiapine i hope so) and also i think i'll be fine with just one antidepresant, i would like to keep the fluoxetine since it is more antiobsesive, and makes good synergy with the Ritalin. The las three ones (diazepam, amitriptyline and perphenazine) is just one pill with three substances at those dosage, that one i self medicate :D is very peaceful mind and doesnt knock me like quetiapine, i also self medicate with pregabalin and lamotrigine, surprising helpful both of them, by reading here and other forums, i decided to try those, i dont know if i tell him the next appointment, lets see how it goes, he is openly when i suggest one med..i'll update later :D and thanks for the welcome! Greetings from Mexico!
