Hey Jamie,

Just popping in to say hello. I think a diretic(sp) is a good thought. Talk it over with your doc.

I hope that you are feeling well today and not so busy. Keep posting. We love to hear from you!!!!!!!!!

Well done Jamie,

Med changes can be really difficult to get through, you are getting there. So good to see you are able to get more things done as well.

Very sad about the changes in Bob, but you are a good friend to him.

Thanks for the updates, take things slow till the medication is completly weaned.

Hey Jamie,

So glad to hear the good news about the lithium. But sorry to hear that the cymbalta tapering isn't easy. But I guess cymbalta is known for that. Kind of like effexor. I went off of that once, thought I was going crazy until I got another med in me.

I am sorry to hear about your friend Bob. He sure is lucky to have you as a friend.

Don't forget, slow and steady wins the race. Pace yourself. But GLAD you have the energy to do all the stuff that you have been doing. It sure does feel good, doesn't it? Take care my friend.

Hugs, Karen

You are a wonderful friend and neighbor.
For the constipation if thats still a problem, I was taking Magnesium 500 mg every day. Strong. Maybe 250 mg would be good.
They say a low dose of Prozac is helpful when weaning off something that is not gong so well.
