Unhappy Aggghhhhhh! I can not stand this lately!

I am not giving up. I know the title maybe misleading.

My doctor has kept me on Cymbalta and Navane and I am feeling worse. My eyes would keep shutting yesterday. I slept A LOT yesterday. I have a four month prescription for this, because they did not know if I could get into see anyone when I first got to Wentzville. My parents trust the doctors and think it's my fault when I go off my meds. They have not seen some of the ill effects I have had on some of these. I need new medicine and feel lost most of the time. I had all of these weird dream like things last night. That was when I could sleep. I felt knocked out yesterday and kind of slept from 2:00pm until 8:00pm. I fear I have an abscessed tooth or an exposed root. My hole where my wisdom tooth used to be is hurting more and more. It kept me up a lot last night. The funny thing is... I feel more delusional ON the freaking meds! I just need something to work, so if you all can hope or pray or do whatever you do...

I really, really could use all of the help I can get, right now.

Re: Aggghhhhhh! I can not stand this lately!

It makes me angry that doctor push antipsychotics, they make me delusional quite often and I believe 100% that they are doing it to you, Navane is a "thorazine generation drug on top of that". Add the antidepressant to that and all that is, is kindling.

I am kind of manic right now so bear with me.


I have read trial after trial of schizophenic patients improvining upon the discontinuation of Antipsychotics, outcomes being worse with antipsychotics and antipsychotic induced psychosis.

After my little rage here I will hunt for them but I am in rare form Jesse, let the lion roar if you know what I mean.

Antidepressants to boot, Mania, psychosis, suicidality?

I hope you find a good doctor soon, seriously. Is there a GP you can see in the meantime? a faxed diagnosis and an internet legit printed out practice protocol may help you on that note.

I have done the shuffle as other bipolars in here have too and it prevents you from living, let alone enjoying or functioning in life.

If that made no sense I am sorry but I hate it when people have crappy doctors.

Re: Aggghhhhhh! I can not stand this lately!

It made total sense Matt.

Seriously.

I have not been able to enjoy anything lately, so I hear where you are coming from there. Even eating is just blah. I only eat to survive. I don't eat for the taste anymore, it seems. I feel "dumbed down" like all of my emotions are there... I just can't feel them. Noise becomes too much. Even colors. I have only a couple days to pack and it seems like forever.

I don't know if this makes any sense?

Re: Aggghhhhhh! I can not stand this lately!

it makes perfect sense and I don't doubt that many people lead excellent lives from antipsychotics but there are a lot of people that they really do no help and I think that needs to be expressed too.

Re: Aggghhhhhh! I can not stand this lately!

Thanks Matt. I tried to read most of it, but it also seems that my mind is wandering and it's hard to concentrate on words... which is a horrible state for one like myself to be in. I rely on words for my paintings and I can not concentrate right now. This sucks and I feel like nothing I do or that doctors do helps right now. If I find out that they have ruined seven years of my life through incompetency... I am not above sueing.

Trust me on that.

Re: Aggghhhhhh! I can not stand this lately!

I am not completely with it today. Please, forgive any mistakes in grammar or words used. I don't think I am doing that poorly, but I may not make total sense. That-or I am doing okay and am being too hard on myself with the partial depression I have?

Re: Aggghhhhhh! I can not stand this lately!

Having bad dreams is no fun.

Have you talked to your Doctor?

I am assuming you didn't just START this med.

Maybe he can at least (a) figure out the best times of day to take the most sedating drugs, and (b) work on dosing with you to reduce bad side effects of this particular med til you can get off the nastiest one/s, and get onto different meds which are less distasteful.

Try to get an interim appointment.
