Seventh day back to only mood stabilizers. No antidepressants. Just this off-label anti-seizure medication.
Only big change I can see is I’m able to sleep better. Escitalopram and me don’t mix. Glad to see it gone.
I looked back over posts from the past year and I seem to have been in a Depressed Mood State for some time.
Playing around with different meds and dosages and combinations of lamotrigine, escitalopram, lurasidone and bupropion.
But it doesn’t seem like those worked really. I seem to be sometimes less Down. But never really Not Down.
I don’t think it’s just that I miss hypomania. Which I do. Mightily.
I feel like my hypomanic self is my true self. And I miss me.
