Hey all. My pdoc has upped my Tegretol and has added these two new meds.  The valium has replaced the ativan which quit working for me totally.  I was melting down badly and the ativan couldn't pull me out of it.  I had my Tegretol levels done and they were very low so he has upped my Tegretol too.  The Seroquel is staying the same because I have to wake up and feed my newborn son; the Seroquel makes me drowsy.
I have been having very bad days.  Lots of crying uncontrollably, a nervous wreck, irritated and agitated.  It has been awful.
Hope all is well with you.  Gotta run; my son is crying.

Hi missflip,

I'm sorry to hear your struggle goes on, but it's good you're doing something about it. These sound like logical moves. Let's hope they work out. (((Hugs))) for you. Let us know how you're feeling.

Hello misflip,
I've just been catching up on the board. Congratulations on your new baby boy!
How have you been doing since the med change?

Neurontin is the worst med I have ever taken. I hope it works for others. It just made me out of it!

Valium I have tried. Too overmedicated with it along with Xanax so I went back on the 4mg of Xanax day only. I was taking 2 mg a day Xanax with the equivalent Valium. Not many other side effects though. More a muscle relaxer than a anti panic/anxiety benzo though.
