Who is up tonight and plans to be all night.  I am in the "manic" phase right now and I plus my brain is moving a mile a minute.  I feel great but thank god my hubby has control of the money or I would be online shopping like crazy!  My hubby says right now I am too complacent (sp) and "zombie" like.  I disagree.  I feel like for once I am not jumping down everyone's throat and feeling pissed off all the time.  Also, can anyone tell me which pill is causing me to gain wait.  Here is what I am on right now:
1.  Efexor 300mg
2.  Lamictal 100mg twice a day
3.  Neurontin 300mg three times a day
4.  Adderol not sure of the dosage twice a day
5.  Zyprexa 10mg at bedtime
6.  Vallium 2mg at bedtime
7.  Talwin NR two every 6 hours as needed (had back surgery 8 weeks ago)
THanks for listening to me ramble tonight and the help with the weight loss problem,

Zyprexa and depakote er made me gain almost 140lbs.I was miserable. Stopped taking them both. I am also in a manic phase. Haven't really been sleeping much for the past month now.
I used to have that same problem with spending money like crazy. Glad I locked up all the credit card too!

Hi wondernurse 247, I was on zyprexa several years ago and gained 30 pounds in 30 days on a tray in the hospital!! Awful, the med worked for me but now I am on seroquel and it is not as bad, but hard to lose the weight. Good luck and hope it is better for you. enpointe

Hi Gemini,

Welcome to HealingWell. How about posting a new topic and telling us a little bit about yourself and what you hope to find on the board. We'd love to know a little bit more about you.

It's nice to have you on the board,
