thank you kitt and Karen.
My dauhgter is on abilify actuall 15 mgs of it a day ,, i give half a pill in the morning and half at night, as she is slightly autistic, and bipolar, and it does work for her. We took both kids of the depakote.
I cant afford the abilify, were already getting it for Kara , too much for me too, high co-pay, I will be going back on topamax once it becomes genric in sept or there abouts, again my son is one it, not just as a mood stablizer but as migraine med. I need it as a nerve med as i have neuropathy, and when i was taking it worked great but again to high co-pay for both of us. the kids come first. I need to figure how to ge a part time job that fit their hours and thats nearly impossible, temp agncies if i get blessed enough to find a part ime job, that take of the weeks or days my children are off. son is 13, kara only 8 and with there issues they would kill each other. my son onlythinks heis on the topamx for migraines, he doesnt know its a mood stablizer. And I am not telling him otherwise. All I know it worked for me. We make too much to qualify for med co-pay help. of course we dont see the money, its all outgoing, thats why I need my own job, i used to work at home making customer service calls, but that posisition was elimated.
I suppose a counseler might help, but hate to approach to subject with my husband, it would mean more money, its best to have another good friend to talk too, maybe my pastor too. I acually email him sometimes. This may be one of those times. And of course all of my friends an healingwell, thats why I turned here. to people who understand.
I guess i can see the light at the end of the tunnel, buts seems like a real long tunnel
Thank you for being there for me.
Karen since I am adhd the adderall puts me to sleep, so thats out. I lost 13 pounds with the wellbutrin, i do remember being a little edgy on it, but that was all I was on, now I am on klonipin which helps with the anxiety, which should cut the edgyness down
Not to mention the two reglan I have before I go to bed which really puts me to sleep, so I am not worried about the edgyness of it, cuz i on other things that subdue me treatments for my gerds/ibs I would keep the prozac. please check my signature which shows what i am on. But the effexsor is making my blood pressure go up, and the weight gain. I am not one to have high blood pressure I am usually low. so it needs to go, or i would have to go on a blood pressure med, and I dont want to do that,. Karen
did the wellbutrin effect your blood pressure. Thats important to me, i m a normal blood pressure person, and want to turn in to a high blood pressure person. I just feel the wellbutrin combined with all else i am on might level me out to normal no energyless, but more energy, than when i get back on the topamax its a weight loser too, but it didnt make me sleepy or wired.
So I have been doing my homework on the meds. thing is my pdoc is out of town, and i cant make any changes to my med until he gets back, and there not taking appts to may. I am glad to know i have you all, and my other close friend too.
God Bless,and have a Great Day!!.......Love.....Sheryl
