Went in to the pdoc yesterday and explained about my increased irritability and feeling out of control so he's raised all my meds. Hmmm...I was kind of thinking the meds might be causing the problems, but he doesn't think so. So anyway, up to 20 on the Abilify, and 450 on the Wellbutrin. Has anyone taken that much Wellbutrin? I know Abilify is often dosed at 30 but 450 of Wellbutrin seems kind of high. I thought the average dose was 300. I'm afraid to do it.
He's also wanting me to take the Ativan at 2 mg 3 times a day regularly for awhile. I'm afraid I'm going to be a zombie. Maybe thats to counteract the stimulant effect that the other 2 have when you start them or raise the dosages. Or maybe just to calm me down so I stop yelling at everyone. My irritability IS out of control.
This is giving me panic attacks just contemplating these med changes.
Good judgement comes from experience and alot of that comes from bad judgement.
You just have to accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.
