i get my tablets weekly serquel lamical litium on my perscrition but i have old persciptions i have put in my old persciptions with my normal one on occasions. my old one has tablets witch i have stopped taking a while ago but i am thinking of putting my old one in with my new one so i can take higher doses of lamical and lithium i take 1000mg of lithium and 400mg of lamical also my old one has celaxa on it too,my doc has no idea i have my old perscrition i should not have one but it does alow me to change things if i wish i know fiddling aboutwith meds is dangerous but i like the idea of being able to increas my meds because my doc does  not like to change things so when i go and see her next if she says what are you takeing again i will say one thing but i have the power to change things if she found out i still had an old perscrition she would not be happy i like the idea of having some control over meds any thoughts

ever since we met i've taken you as a bright and intelligent 30-something-year-old man.  why do you want to do something that is totally dysfunctional?  keeping secrets from loved ones, caregivers, and lawyers (vomit)  is argueably the most dysfunctional thing anyone can do.  how can they help us if they don't know the full story?
you know as well as i do that getting and staying with a care provider is a compromise - kiind of like a marriage.  so this pdoc doesn't like to change meds - if it ain't broke don't fix it.  not a bad philosophy.  on the other hand if you level with her about your needs and she won't help, consider firing her.  do you REALLY want to do that?
hope this helps.

Warren's right - if your meds aren't doing the job then tell your doc , they can't help you if you don't tell them there's anything wrong. Messsing with your meds could end you in deep - you know what I mean.

If on the other hand this is more to do with control rather than the actual meds , you need to think about that. Is it that you feel your doc has control over you ,and by taking charge of your meds that you have control over your doc?

People with eating disorders use food to take control of their lives but the actual problem does not stem from the food but from other events in life..........
