Hi ya'll. I'm new here. I would like some suggestions on where to go from here with my meds. Right now I'm on Prozac 30mgs, Tegretol XR 1000 mgs, Serequel XR 300, and Rozerm 8 mgs...a day. I've been on the Serequel for about six months or so and have to get off it soon. I don't want the side effects to affect me long term...like the one about it raising your bad cholesterol and so on. So....what other meds are out there that I could try to take the place of the Seroquel? Any suggestions on what to try.
I need a pill that will futher stable the occasional hypo mania and sleepless and irritability that comes with that.......basicly a pill that will mellow my moods out a little bit more in a way the Tegretol just can't seem to touch. Not mellow "Me" out, mellow my moods out a bit more...if that makes sense. Don't get me wrong the tegretol is a true life saving wonder. But I need a little more ummfh...that it just can't give. Wish it did though I hate taking pills.
I was diagnosed as manic depressive at the age of seven...been taking pills ever since.
