Has anyone ever been tempted to tell their doctor, “I want to get off all the medication I’m on now and start over from scratch.”
It’s been over a year for me and I’m still not stable. I’m so sick of this. I’m sick of trying to throw a new med in, and when it doesn’t work dumping it for another.
I’m on these meds:
- 200 mg of lamictal 2x daily
- 600 mg of lithium am, 900 pm
- 100 mg of seroquel at bedtime
before the seroquel, we tried 5 mg of abilify once a day and that didn’t make a dent.
It seems like every time I try a new med, it works for a while and then it doesn’t.
I’m so discouraged by this. I know that the Lord knows exactly what meds I need, and He has His reasons (good ones!) for not showing them to my doctor yet. But I am so so sick of this.
