It's been a while since I sat down and counted my meds... But I take A LOT. Oh yeah, what I take is listed in the "sig" space at the bottom of the post. BUT I take Lexapro & Wellbutrin, Topamax, & Clonapin AT LEAST for my Bi-polar Disorder... AND this is while I've been "completely stable" for a number of years!!!
I moved & a new Doc wanted to mess with my meds, asking me if I ever tried LITHIUM--like that wasn't the FIRST thing they tried 20 years ago!!! And he won't give me my Ulcerative Colitis Meds, unless I agree to go OFF one of the antidepressants--'cause "Reglan" has a risk of causing Tardive Dyskinesia! NOW my UC is ALL F-d up, AND I think I need a little HIGHER dosage of the LEXAPRO!!!
I Wish YOU Well in Your Travails!
