I am so embaressed to say that I have had huge mood swings since a change in my drugs.
I was on 75mg amitryptelene and was told by my neurologist to increase to 150mg, I was scared of this immediately but you try don't you. I went up to 100mg then a few weeks later to 125mg, it completely dryed me out I couldn't drink enough water or juice so I started to reduce it again and this was when my mood swings started. I got down to just 25mg and still I was struggling with all of the above. after a couple of visits to my Dr She changed me to Duloxotine 60mg and I have to take a month to get my body used to this.
here comes the ashamed bit my wife and daughters were leaving for the weekend and I thought I would do Valentines on thursday, roses, Lileys and a glass table with all of our photo's from the years gone by and I decided to do something that I do not do.....a bottle of wine.
My wife has to wrk very hard because I have been unable to work, she came in looked down had a drink went and had a shower and got in to bed with very little conversation, not a thank you......and then I had a severe mood swing that I have never had before and started punching our bedroom door ....this is not me at all and I am reaching out to you all out of embaressment and ashamed of my actions.Now sat at home alone for the weekend while the girls are away and terribly ashamed of what I have done. Never have I done anything like this before this.
Any words of wisdom against this damn Fibro would be a help, I am considering taking myself away from the family for month in April to try and sort myself out for them . HELP !!!!!
