In a crisis here. Have over the past 2 1/2 weeks been weaning off of my meds under psych supervision(he agreed they were making me worse).
Have so far gotten off Trileptal and Lamictal completely.
Am now halfway off the Neurontin(1 week wean so far) and THIS has been hellish. Crying, no appetite, severe horrible anxiety. I am afraid of what happens when I go down another 300mg.
I cant be alone at all all day due to panic when alone. I am basically a mental basketcase. Lucky my mom has been able to come while my husband is at work.'
I am obviously unemployed now and almost homebound. Washing my hair causes severe crying bouts. Can barely brush my teeth etc.
We want to stay out of the hospital. Does anyone think partial day hospitalization is helpful during this time?
Anyone been through this.
My Bipolar tends to be the depressive kind and I only had one major 4 month manic episode 2 years ago(yes, 4 months probably induced by the highdose effexor I had been put on.
Sorry this is so long but my rope is getting shorter!
Thanks for being here.
