I'm sorry you didn't get any responses to your previous post. I know that can be discouraging.
I'm glad to hear you have gone without drinking for the past two days. But why are you trying to cut your medications down? Did your doctor recommend or approve of this? It sounds like you are trying too many different things that may not work for you. Maybe if you try to cut out the drinking and focus on the proper dosage of meds you will have better results. I hope I'm not sounding "preachy" about
the drinking. I'm just not sure the combination of drinking and the meds is healthy.
Don't feel dumb and aimless; maybe you just haven't found the right combination of meds and/or dosage for you. Perhaps your doctor can help you with that.
I hope you have a better day.
