I am back from my dctors.  I went off Topamax because some people are showing neurological based personality disorders if they take it long term and I was already am having fugue states.  I am going off the Lexapro and back on the Wellbutrin.  I also went off the haldol and onto a mix of 6mg. Risperdal and 10-15mg. Zyprexa.  He also added 45mg. of Restoril at night since I cannot sleep (I take it w/Clonodine .2mg & Deseryl 300mg.) The Restoril didn't help so I think our next shot is an anesthesia capsule or oral liquid drug dosed to knock me out based on bedtime and when I want wake up.   Today is a very bad day. I got my keys taken away after I grabbed a bottle of pills yesterday and while he was bring them from the drug store and tried to take them all  SO today I feel bad and am sore from our stuggle but still alive.  Since the I might be taking an anesthetic, does anyone here do that or have done that?  Did it work?

Gosh, you have had a time of it. I really hope you get to feeling better today. Stay strong.
I hope the new medication combination works better for you. I take my Seroquel at night to help me sleep too. Otherwise, I wouldn't sleep. Good luck.

Did you ever try Sinequan? It's an older a/d. I'm not bipolar but I did have severe insomnia with major depression years ago and it worked great. That was after trying Tylenol 3, Seroquel, Ambien, Deseryl, remeron, etc.

Sorry you had such a bad day yesterday. I hope that you are feeling better today. And don't worry about the spelling, LOL.

What a lot of changes for one visit. I don't know how you keep it all straight. What a terrible day. I don't know what prompted you to feel the need to take a bottle of pills, but I hope you will feel better soon. You know to call the Suicide Hotline if you ever feel the urge, right? 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433)

take care,
