I can't take the side effects from the Abilify anymore so I'm going
to ask my Dr. today if I can switch to Lamictal.

I think it will be a positive change, I hope my Pdoc. is in agreement.

I have to leave it in the hands of Spirit.

I just want to be able to breathe without wheezing, read a book, make
flowing conversation, walk without my feet aching, be able to just be instead
of the constant agitation.

I know everything will work out fine, just another hurdle to jump over.

He added Congentin torelieve the agitation and restlessness.
Aaaaargh....another drug. I was hoping to switch to a new mood
stabilizer.

But perhaps this will work. We'll see!

Anyone have any experience with Cogentin?

Cogentin. Hmmm. No experience there, and I haven't heard much about it. It's an anti-tremor drug, isn't it?
