Thanks for the warm welcome! I feel I have two big challenges right now...managing my meds and finding the time to come up with a "wellness" plan. For some reason I keep putting it off. Perhaps being scared and not knowing "who" to include in the plan as well as "what". My husband has done well so far, but the severe manic state that lasted 3-4 days and almost got me admitted to the hospital scared us both.
Two other things I am dealing with is the weight gain (12-15 pounds) from being on meds and affording them. I am on, Gabapentin 400mg, Lamictal 300mg, Seroquel XR 150mg, Seroquel 100mg. Through my mania they had me on Geodon which is outrageously expensive! My doctor suggested replacing the regular Seroquel with Geodon, but for 90 pills it was $241 with insurance!
