Been thinking a lot lately about my meds and how unhappy I am about the weight gain and efficacy , or lack thereof. Right now, here are my meds:(less than they used to be!)
Seroquel 600 mg
Lithium 1200 mg
Topamax 25 mg (recently lowered cuz I am still fat regardless of dose increase!)
Everytime I cut back the seroquel I get extremely irritable, this is a big contributor to weight gain (40 lbs in 3 mos and holding). I have been on the first 2 for 2 years this winter-my pdoc tells me it will take this long for the Lith to kick in, but to me this sounds ludicrous!
No to mention, I lose my drug plan in Aug, and my pills cost about $300/mos...thanks to the Seroquel.
So how does this add up to ya'll?
