Well crap... I haven't posted anything since March 31. Okay. Here is kind of what has been going on. I took myself off of lurasidone since I didn't like the lethargy/eating a lot at night that went with that.
My Depression did not seem to be super bad after that. I wouldn't say I was super awesome, but not all weepy or... I don't know. Better than bad.
I received permission (after the fact) from my psych NP to make adjustments to my meds. In general, she said, I have her blessing to make adjustments to my meds. Not to go off of them though-- I mean not off my baseline mood stabilizer (the lamotrigine).
Okay, so then I eventually visited psych NP and she put me on a mini dose (5 mg? I will check when I get home) of escitalopram. She wanted me to take half a tablet. A baby dose.
But the pills are so tiny that much of the medicine is consumed just by cutting it in half. So I have switched to a whole pill... keeping an eye on whether or not my hypomania starts to rear its fidgety head.
Some possibly-symptomatic things:
I'm gonna try and post more again later. I don't want to make this a giant post.
Equatorial actions: Not much. I am spending too much time napping, reading and watching soapy, ridiculous vampire dramas.This summer I plan to get back to exercising at the Y while elderboy is doing Swim Team
200 mg lamotrigine
5 mg escitalopram
